Traffic is now getting through slowly however queues have been building because of crashed vehicles and jacknifed lorries and generally slow moving traffic.

Very strong winds, drifting snow and almost zero visibility in some areas have made driving conditions treacherous.

The A75 at Creetown is currently closed because of crashed vehicles and the severe drifting snow.

An Amber warning for further heavy snowfall has been issued by the Met Office through to 2300 hours this evening .

Drivers are being advised NOT to travel due to the extreme weather conditions, which show no signs of letting up.
