GLASGOW Airport has reopened after temporarily closing as heavy snowfall brought operations to a halt.

The city airport confirmed that they have teams working to reopen the transport hub.

About an hour after shutting operations, the airport tweeted: "The airport is now open and operational again. Our winter operations team will remain on standby throughout the day to monitor weather conditions."

Around 10am, Traffic Scotland said the Erskine Bridge was still partially blocked due to a road traffic collission, causing traffic to queue.

West Dunbartonshire Council said on Friday morning: "Our gritting teams are currently deployed within the area and are retreating primary routes. We have been out treating priority routes since 4am and additional ploughs have been fitted as required."

The disruption comes as the Met Office maintained a yellow "be aware" warning for snow across central and southern Scotland.

Last night was one of the country's coldest of the year, with temperatures plunging to -12.3C (9.8F) at Loch Glascarnoch.

The weather warning continues until 3pm today and is predicted to bring up to 5cm of snow at low levels and 10-15cm on ground above 250 metres.
