Aerial shots show extent of delays on Scottish roads

The police in Scotland are urging drivers to make only essential journeys as the country remains in the grip of the big freeze.

Many cars and lorries have been left abandoned on snow-bound roads and routes such as the M8 remain closed.

Sub-zero temperatures overnight are likely to cause widespread ice.

Video images taken from a police helicoptor show traffic at a standstill on many major roads.
