The Isle of Man's Mountain Road has reopened after snow blocked the route for much of Wednesday.

The A18 - the highest road on the Isle of Man - closed at 08:00 GMT and did not reopen until 17:30.

Gritters were deployed to other island roads, including the Sloc Road, as wintry weather made driving conditions dangerous.

An amber warning remains in place, with heavy rain, sleet and snow set to continue until early Thursday.

A police spokesman urged motorists to take "extra care".
