A92 Aberdeen to Stonehaven road was affected this morning, as protestors were driving 30 mph in convoys.

Road Policing chief inspector Lorraine Napier said: “We are aware of protests on motorways and trunk roads in Scotland on Monday, July 4.

“We urge all road users to drive within the speed limits and at an appropriate speed for the road conditions to encourage safe and responsible road use for all.

“Nevertheless, drivers should be aware that journey times could be longer than normal, especially on motorways and trunk roads, and make travel plans accordingly.

“Police Scotland is a rights-based organisation that puts our values of integrity, fairness, respect and a commitment to upholding human rights at the heart of everything we do. This means that we will protect the rights of people who wish to peacefully protest or counter-protest balanced against the rights of the wider community.”

More planned protests are expected in days, as protestors threaten to convoy on major routes around Scotland.
