The north east of Scotland is facing another day of snow disruption.

Many roads throughout the area remain affected and the winter weather is causing problems with pupil transport at more than 50 schools in Aberdeenshire.

Some parents have been pulling children to school on sledges rather than face driving in heavy traffic.

Grampian Police said the overall picture did not appear to have worsened overnight.

Gritters have been out in force across the region.

Fresh snow is being forecast in the area on Friday.

Gillian Duncan, pulling Kate and Alex to school in Aberdeen on a sledge, told the BBC Scotland news website: "It's the quickest way."
