Police Scotland have increased its travel warning from stage 2 to stage 3 earlier today, meaning travel disruption expected.

Superintendent Louise Blakelock, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing said: “Due to the upgraded warning from the Met Office it has been necessary to update our travel advice.

“We’ve been working closely with our colleagues at Transport Scotland, the Met Office and local councils to assess the conditions. Therfore for the duration of this updated warning, there is a high risk of disruption for road journeys and there is a high likelihood of the conditions for travel being very poor.

“Those heading out on the roads should be aware of these risks – ensure you have a fully charged phone, warm clothing, and leave extra time for your journey.

First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon said the Scottish Government is alerting business groups and urging employers to be flexible.
