AS the Beast from the East continues to batter the country, 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 be cancelled today.

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.

Nothing has been running to and from Ayr, Largs or Ardrossan to Glasgow so far.

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 today.

A spokesman said: "A severe amber warning advising against all but essential travel has been issued by the Met Office and will remain in place until tomorrow morning.

"In light of this and the impact it is having on passengers and staff, including airline staff, travelling to and from the airport we will remain closed for the rest of the day.

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

"Our teams are continuing with snow clearing operations, however, we would advise passengers not to travel to the airport.

"Anyone with travel plans should contact their airline directly for specific flight information."

We will have more updates posted as we get them.
