As well as the WEDNESDAY red alert – which has never before been issued for Scotland, England or Northern Ireland – amber warnings have also been issued for the north-east of England and the central belt of Scotland, in place between 10am and 8pm on Thursday, and for south west England and south Wales from 12pm until 8am on Friday.
On top of these, yellow snow warnings have been issued for vast swathes of southern, central, and northern England, Northern Ireland and Wales – in place for most of Thursday.
Some drivers claimed to have been stuck on the M80 motorway between Glasgow and Stirling since Wednesday afternoon. The motorway was closed southbound between junctions 8 and 9.
