Scots schools announce closures due to snow - full list here

By Lisa Hodge

Some of Scotland has woken up to snow this morning which has prompted some schools to announce they are closed.

While some are closed until further notice, others have said they will open later on today.

Snow has swept the country causing havoc on the roads for some drivers on major roads. The road between Glasgow and Fenwick in Ayrshire has been particularly affected with pictures showing mountains of snow on the road as transport bosses battle to clear it.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice in force until 12pm today.
