Rain batters district
Heavy rain is causing problems for motorists across Falkirk district.
The sustained rainfall, which began on Tuesday evening and continued throughout today, has led to lots of surface water.
All roads in the area remain passable at present. However, in and around neighbouring Stirling some roads are either closed or only passable with caution.
Falkirk Council has been asked to supply sandbags as a precaution at several locations should water levels continue to rise.
Some have been provided to cover air vents on a property in Gairdoch Drive, Carronshore affected by surface water run-off and in Haypark Road, Head of Muir to divert surface water to a watercourse.
The Bairns friendly against Hearts tonight at The Falkirk Stadium will go ahead. It follows a pitch inspection this afternoon when the surface was deemed playable.
