Heavy snow causes traffic trouble

The A755 at Barharrow near Gatehouse on Wednesday morning.

SNOW affected much of the region on Wednesday morning, with schools closing and roads barely passable.

The A75 between Glenluce and Newton Stewart saw several drivers take a spin, with a similar picture on the Euro route around Gatehouse.

The A755 between Kirkcudbright and Gatehouse was treacherous as heavy snow continued to fall throughout the morning.

Newton Stewart suffered a heavy dose which quickly turned to sleet, causing slushy roads and a few wet feet on pavements.

Kirkcowan Primary School was closed due to a heating failure and many homes in Newton Stewart suffered a loss of power, though some of these are thought to have been due to a tree coming down the day before.

The forecast was for a warmer but wet few days ahead.
