Following a day of heavy snowfall, many roads across north and north-east are covered in snow causing travel mayhem, which will continue tomorrow.

Temperatures dipped to well below freezing overnight bringing heavy snow which equals major headaches for motorists across the region.

It is set to continue for the next four days with a Met Office yellow warning in place until late on Thursday.

There has been severe travel disruption on trains and roads, resulting in many Aberdeenshire and Highland schools closing for the day.

Disruption is set to continue tomorrow as some schools and travel operators have announced that they will be affected on Tuesday.

According to Aberdeen City Council all priority one pavements and roads have been gritted.

The A92 near Charleston has been closed eastbound due to an accident on the road. It is yet unclear how many vehicles were involved or if there are any injuries.

Major roads such as the AWPR, A92, A9 and A96 are all affected with some being ploughed and gritted.

It is also understood that several rural roads across Aberdeenshire have been affected by snow and black ice.

In Aberdeen city, there has been lying snow which will slow down traffic through the city centre. Tractors can be seen ploughing car parks including at Kittybrewster Retail Park.

Due to continued snow showers and road surface temperatures well below 0C, Aberdeen City Council will be gritting the primary routes twice overnight, first at 7pm and again from about 4am.

They will continuously grit the arterial main roads through the night.

The priority 1 pavements (Union Street and nearby) will be gritted early morning, too.

Aberdeenshire council have said that all of their 32 gritters will be out treating the primary network from 4pm this afternoon and again tomorrow from 5.30am.

Secondary routes and footway treatments will also be undertaken in the morning.

These include the A96 between Aberdeen and Inverurie, the A944 Lang Stracht near the Sure Hotel, and the AWPR near Westhill.

Police are urging those planning to head out in their cars today to plan ahead as snow on the roads is significantly increasing journey times to destinations.

Gritters and snow ploughs are also out on patrol clearing the roads for motorists.

Traffic Scotland has confirmed the snow gates located at Cock Bridge remain closed while Braemar, Glenshee and Tomintoul have been reopened.

In Inverness roads are mainly dry with some frost.

The A82 at Drumnadrochit has cleared following a road traffic incident which took place earlier this evening.
