Man dies in embankment car plunge
Crash scene
Bad weather may have played a part in the accident
A man has died after his car plunged 30ft down an embankment in Angus.

His vehicle was one of three to come off the A90 just south of Edzell shortly after 1100 GMT.

It is believed the bad weather played a part in the accident, as none of the vehicles are understood to have collided.

The man, thought to be in his early 50s and from Aberdeenshire, had been helped from his car by emergency staff and passers by, but died at the scene.
