Storm Eunice has triggered the Met Office to raise UK weather warnings to a rare red “danger to life” warning.

Amber and yellow warnings are still in place for the rest of England and a Scotland snow warning has been in place since early on Friday morning.

Yellow snow warnings for most of central and Southern Scotland and Northern Ireland have been issued between 3am and 6pm on Friday.

Snow will affect large parts of mainland Scotland in the northern and central belt, with travel delays and stranded vehicles expected, among other potential train and flight cancellations.

A Met Office spokesman suggested Scottish weather was due to be felt at 3am on Friday and to last until 6pm on Friday night.

Railway lines, roads and bridges are expected to shut down, causing delays and disruption to traffic.
