AS the Beast from the East continues to batter the country, East Renfrewshire and the surrounding areas have come to a standstill.

Due to poor road conditions many services remain cancelled or suspended.

All McGill’s services will remain cancelled until at least 1pm.

Further updates will be provided at 12pm.

First Bus are also suspending services until further notice.

All Scottish Citylink services have been suspended until 4pm with only a handful of buses running.

Meanwhile there won't be any services going in and out of Glasgow Central before 10am.

And due to the severity of the weather warning, it is recommended that cars stay off the roads today.

Holidaygoers and those looking to travel by plane have also been left disappointed as Glasgow Airport will remain shut until 3pm.

A spokesman said: "Following heavy snow showers overnight and with a red alert still in place we will be extending the closure of the airport until 3pm on Thursday.

"Further snow is forecast during the day which will make travel conditions to and from the airport extremely challenging. 

"This decision has been taken with the safety of passengers and staff in mind.

"We would advise passengers not to travel to the airport and anyone with travel plans should contact their airline directly for specific flight information."

We will have more updates posted as we get them.
