The Isle of Man's Mountain Road has reopened after overnight snow caused "a number of vehicles" to get stuck, police have confirmed.

The A18 road was closed between Ramsey Hairpin and the Creg ny Baa.

A police spokesman said "motorists should still take extra care on the island's roads which remain slippery in many places".

Higher Foxdale, Maughold and Richmond Hill in Braddan have all been described as "very slippery".

The Department of Infrastructure's gritters were deployed earlier in a bid to keep affected routes clear.
