Heavy snow has hit much of the Grampian area, causing serious delays for motorists.

The snow did not start falling in Aberdeen until about 08:00 but was soon lying, and motorists in Aberdeenshire were stuck in long rush-hour tailbacks.

Cars were reported to be stuck on the Tyrebagger, with one motorist describing the scene as "carnage".

And a car landed on its roof on the B977 in the wintry conditions. No-one was believed to be seriously injured.

The snow also caused problems for several schools, due to transport issues.

Weather warnings are in place for snow and icy conditions across many parts of Scotland over the next few days.

Wintry showers began in the north east of the country on Saturday and about 3cm of snow fell in the east and in the Borders on Sunday.
