It comes as no surprise that a 13km stretch of the A937 between Montrose and Ago (Laurencekirk) has been named as one of the most dangerous roads in the UK.

Local campaigners are angered. Decide for yourself by downloading a copy of the report here:

We don't want a notorious road in the Mearns. We want a flyover NOW!
