Heavy snow across the central belt and Borders is affecting travel across much of the country.

At around 10am the travel hub tweeted it was back up and running, but winter operations staff would be on standby throughout the day.

Forecasters predict those conditions will head eastwards before turning into sleet and rain.

It comes as yellow warnings for snow and ice have been put in place across large parts of the country.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: “Temperatures dropped quite a bit last night creating some fair amounts of snow coming through.

“As we continue that should start to pull away eastwards, we should see some milder air, turning to a watery mix of precipitation.

“By evening time it should be mostly dry.”
