Heavy snowfall at mainland airports is disrupting flights for the Western Isles.

Glasgow services to all island airfields are badly hit with cancellations in the morning and afternoon.

A Glasgow Airport spokesman said: “Due to the continued and extreme weather conditions we have had to extend the suspension of all services until 1pm.”

He said passengers should contact their airline for specific flight information before travelling to the airport.

The Aberdeen - Stornoway service is also delayed.

Road links from mainland ferry ports are also affected by snow.

Citylink warned all its bus services are subject to delay.

Train lines are also affected. Network Rail said: “Staff are working hard to keep the infrastructure clear and open in the face of difficult conditions.”

A red weather warning covering parts of the central belt has been issued by the Met Office which says roads may become blocked by deep snow, with many stranded vehicles and passengers.

Transport minister said people should avoid travel in the worst hit areas.

He stressed: “Ask yourself if your journey is absolutely essential? If not, do not travel.”
