An additional warning for wind has been issued from Wednesday night into Thursday, with gusts of 60 to 70 miles per hour expected in some areas.

The Stage Four AMBER warning has been issued as a result of severe snow showers forecasted for central and southern Scotland overnight and Police Scotland advises that if you do travel, you are likely to experience severe delays of several hours or more.

Yellow "be aware" warnings of snow and ice across much of Scotland and Northern Ireland are also in force until 6pm on Wednesday.

There was also potential for blizzards and drifting snow, as strong winds were also expected, particularly over higher ground.
