'Zero visibility' in Scotland sandstorm

As sandstorms continue to hit parts of Scotland, police have urged drivers to take extra care on the roads.

Last week the storms were so severe snowploughs had to be used to clear roads of drifting sand and soil blown from surrounding fields.

Cameron Philson was driving from Elgin to Lossiemouth last week when he was caught in the midst of a sandstorm.

His wife filmed from the car, as he tried to drive in almost zero visibility.

He told the BBC News website it was the worst sandstorm he had experienced.

He said sand even poured into the bathroom of his home after he left a window open.
