Scotland's roads are being patrolled by a band of gritters with puntastic names

Sub-zero conditions and snow in parts of Scotland have left the country's roads in treacherous condition, but a "gritter tracker" is providing concerned drivers with a better picture of their areas roads.

The live map is featured on Traffic Scotland and shows motorists the exact location of the country's fleet of gritters, all of which are labelled with humorous names.

At the time of writing, Sir Grits-A-Lot can be seen ploughing the A96 south of Keith, while Gangsta Granny Gritter appears to be patrolling the streets of Inverness.

David Plowie and Grittest Hits, meanwhile, are in the process of making the streets of Glasgow safe.
