The winter weather has eased its grip in the north east of Scotland, a day after causing major travel problems.

More snow fell on Wednesday night, but there was no repeat of the serious delays that had faced motorists, such as in Aberdeen.

In Aberdeenshire, conditions were described as hazardous on the A939 Cockbridge to Tomintoul road.

Grampian Police continued to advise drivers to take extra care and allow more time for journeys.
