A normally busy road re-opened to traffic this afternoon as council engineers cleared flooding apparently caused by blocked drains.

The A8004 between the Checkbar roundabout and Bonnybridge golf club was closed at the weekend following days of torrential rain.

A council spokeswoman said the road had re-opened by 3.30 p.m.

Meanwhile, a yellow weather warning remains in place for central Scotland for later today as high winds and rain are expected.
