Snow has been causing issues on one of Scotland's busiest motorways this evening.

The M77 close to Ayrshire has been hit with a blizzard causing a number of problems for drivers.

Reports are emerging of cars sliding and getting stuck on some routes.

One eye-witness said: "Main roads were terrible (motorway) and all through Moscow and neighbouring villages (A719).

"No sign of gritters and cars were getting stuck on hills."

Another eye-witness has reported two lorries ditched on the inside lane of the M77 close to Eaglesham.

A Met Office yellow warning for snow is in place until 10am tomorrow morning.

The warning reads: "Wintry showers are expected to continue through Wednesday night into Thursday morning, especially over Northern Ireland and western Scotland, before developing more widely across parts of northern England, the north Midlands and north Wales later in the night.

"This will leave surfaces wet, leading to icy stretches developing on untreated surfaces.

"Showers will fall as a mixture of hail, sleet and snow. Some places are likely to see 1 to 3cm of snow, mainly above 100m, with 5 to 10cm possible above 400m."
