A police campaign to get the public to prepare a "grab-and-go" bag in case of emergencies has been both criticised and mocked by social media users.
A Police Scotland tweet urged people to pack essentials such as a first aid kit, radio, torch, and food and water.
Its recommendations were part of an annual Preparedness Month, which is being promoted by local authorities and emergency services across the UK.
However, the police force has been accused of scaremongering.
The tweet read: "September is preparedness month. Emergencies can happen at any time and it's recommended to have a #GrabBag ready containing essential items including medication, copies of important documents, food/water, torch, radio and other personal items."
