A section of the M8 motorway is partially flooded due to icy rain battering the country. 

Traffic Scotland confirmed that lane 3 is flooded westbound at Junction 28 of the busy stretch.

Drivers are being urged to approach the area with caution despite traffic continuing to move past the flooding.

Drivers on Scotland's roads have been told to take extra care, with snow and ice expected to affect travel throughout the weekend.

The Met Office has upgraded its weather warning to severe amber level and indicated that heavy snow with blizzards could lead to travel delays and power cuts across parts of the country.
