Wintry weather warnings issued for Scotland

The Met Office has issued warnings of severe weather for much of Scotland.

An amber "be prepared" warning for heavy rain in Aberdeenshire, Angus and Perthshire and a yellow "be aware" warning for snow and ice is in place for southern Scotland.

Gale force winds are expected along the north coast and Northern Isles, with snow and wintry showers across much of the country as Friday beckons.

There are fears disruption for travellers due to risks of further flooding as heavy rain falls on saturated ground and swollen rivers.
