Surviving a night on the snow-blocked M80 - 'Spirit of the people was unbelievable'

Hundreds of cars remained stranded on the M80 mid-morning on Thursday.

However, there was gradual movement as the snow blizzards eased.

One white van driver hailed those who had brought comfort to the many stuck on the motorway.

He said: "Bless em, they deserve a medal - the spirit of people was unbelievable."
