HOSPITAL roof tiles have been blown off in Glasgow as the extreme weather of the "Beast from the East" continues to batter Scotland.

Panels flew off Princess Royal Maternity in Glasgow today, with blizzard-like conditions hitting the city.

SNP councillor Allan Casey shared a photograph of the hospital on Twitter, accompanied by a warning.

Assessments are being carried out on site and work is being done to make the area safe.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said no one had been injured in the incident.

The health board is among a number to cancel all non-essential operations and outpatient appointments because of the severe weather.

An amber warning for snow is place across much of Scotland until 10am tomorrow, with a yellow alert continuing over the coming days.
