Live weather and travel updates as more snow forecast after Scotland battered by Beast from the East

Scots face a third day of travel disruption after the Beast from the East weather front hit hard on Wednesday and Thursday.

Most school across the country remain closed while the situation on the roads has improved although many routes are still treacherous.

Troops have even been called in to transport hundreds of hospital staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and Western General to and from work.

The rail network is still struggling to get back to normal with all cross-border trains between England and Scotland suspended yesterday.

Flights have been hit by a flurry of delays and cancellations with some passengers spending a second night stuck in Glasgow Airport in the hope of finally getting away on their travels today.

Scotland faces another day of low temperatures with frequent snow showers forecast as the Beast from the East weather front starts to fizzle out.

Warmer air is starting to move north but an amber warning for snow is place across much of Scotland until 10am on Friday with a yellow alert continuing over the coming days.
