Drivers faced delays on a number of roads due to heavy snowfall with poor visibility and difficult road conditions adding to journey times.

A yellow weather warning is in place for much of the country with a snow and ice warning for a number of other areas, however, it does not seem that Edinburgh will be too badly impacted.

Despite this, forecasters have warned to expect the occasional snow shower or flurry throughout the day.
