Snow Disruption Hits Central Belt

There are Met office amber warnings in place for snow across the east of the country as the cold snap continues.

A further ten to twenty centimetres of snowfall is expected. 

Yellow be aware warnings are in place for the rest of the central belt.

Transport Minister Keith Brown said: ``As the wintry weather continues, Transport Scotland stands ready to respond swiftly and appropriately. Our Multi Agency Response Team (MART) will monitor the difficult conditions and the Scottish Government's resilience team is also closely monitoring the situation to help deliver a co-ordinated response. 

``Motorists and public transport users should factor the weather and high likelihood of disruption into their travel plans, staying abreast of live travel information by listening to local radio reports and checking online sources."
