DRIVERS are being urged to take care on the roads as a yellow weather warning for ice covers Scotland. 

The Met Office issued the alert, valid until 11am, for Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England, and Yorkshire and Humber. 

Traffic Scotland warned drivers to take care and drive to the conditions when travelling. 

Elsewhere, ScotRail confirmed that services via Glasgow Central’s low-level face disruption due to flooding. 

Plans have been put in place to try and tackle the issue and allow commuters to reach their destination. 

The West Coast Main Line between Glasgow and Carlisle will also remain shut until Friday after flooding caused “significant damage” to an embankment. 

Gritters have also been out treating roads around the country and councils have urged people to be cautious. 

Stirling Council tweeted: “With a yellow weather warning for ice in place until 11am today (January 2), our gritting teams have been treating priority routes across #Stirling.
