Police Scotland have told commuters they will face lengthy delays and issued advice to drivers set to tackle the road.

A statement read: "We're advising drivers that the Met Office has issued an Amber and Yellow Weather Warning and there is a HIGH RISK OF DISRUPTION FOR ROAD JOURNEYS in all areas of mainland Scotland.

"If you do travel, you are likely to experience significant delays.

"Congestion caused by all vehicles may restrict the emergency services, recovery vehicles, gritters and snowploughs from providing essential assistance or from clearing roads.

"All drivers should ask themselves if they really need to travel when conditions are poor. No-one should ever place themselves at risk on the road and it may be worth making alternative arrangements such as delaying travel until conditions improve or using public transport.
