It is pretty - unless you are driving in the snow, and tonight is expected to be bad.


People in the south of Scotland are being urged to avoid travel this evening, following an amber warning for snow from the Met Office.

The amber warning is in place for an area including South Lanarkshire, from 9pm tonight to 5am tomorrow (Thursday).

The Transport Minister chaired a meeting of the Scottish Government Resilience Team (SGoRR) and following that, the police travel warning level is being raised to stage four, which means people in the affected area should avoid travel during the period of the amber warning.

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf apologised to road users who were stuck on the M74 last night.

"It is not a situation anyone should have to experience and that is why we are taking steps to make sure we don’t face similar issues tonight. I’d also like to pay tribute to the emergency staff and volunteers who worked tirelessly last night to help the people that were stuck," he said.
