Snow finally hits Galloway with force

HEAVY snow fell in parts of Galloway over the weekend, leaving many people stuck at home.

Parts of the Stewartry in particular were badly affected with many streets remaining ungritted or ploughed into the week.

Police closed parts of the A75 when lorries were unable to climb steeper parts and although no schools were closed today (Monday), roads were to be passed with care.

Weather forecasters predict further snow on Thursday.
