Police in Scotland have dealt with 25 road collisions in widespread freezing conditions.

The Met Office said the lowest temperature recorded overnight was -9C, at Dalwhinnie in the central Highlands - not quite as cold as predicted.

Forecasters said high pressure was creating clear and calm conditions, and dragging in cold arctic air.

Conditions are forecast to remain cold, with a widespread frost by Monday morning.

Asking drivers to take additional care, Police Scotland said: "Slow down and be mindful of conditions on roads that may not have not been gritted."
