Storm Dudley is wreaking havoc on South Ayrshire this afternoon as various areas begin to flood.

The A713 at University Hospital Ayr is currently flooded, meaning motorists are having to mount the kerb to get by.

In video footage you can see motorists having to get almost all four wheels on the pavement to pass.

Joanne Edwards, Director of Acute Services at NHS Ayrshire and Arran issued the following statement in response: "We are aware of flooding issues on the A713 at Ailsa Hospital earlier today which impacted on traffic entering the site and travelling to University Hospital Ayr.

"During this time we worked closely with Scottish Ambulance Service colleagues to minimise disruption, and were in contact with the local council and Ayrshire Road Alliance.

"With bad weather set to continue over the coming days we are asking patients and staff to take extra care with travelling and to allow additional time for their journey.

"If you are unable to make your appointment please contact the Referral Management Service on 01563 827070."

And water levels are rising in Hole Road in Coylton, coming dangerously close to entrances to properties.

It comes as the Scottish Enviromental Protection Agency (SEPA) has issued a flood warning for Ayr and Troon as Storm Dudley approaches the south west coast.

They say the risk of flooding is largely due to wave overtopping and spray along the sea front.

The warning is in place with immediate effect but SEPA says the risk is particularly high between 10pm today and 3am on Thursday.
