THIS is the jaw-dropping moment the baggage reclaim conveyor belt at Glasgow Airport came through - caked in snow.

Passengers who had just landed back in the city couldn’t believe their eyes when, instead of their cases, they were met with piles of the cold, white stuff.

The eye-opening clip was filmed by Facebook user Jade Lowther who was waiting with a pal on luggage to come through.

“Welcome home howling,” she wrote.

The clip was posted online on Wednesday afternoon. In just 24 hours, it has already amassed 60,000 views and thousands more in comments and shares from users left just as mind-boggled.

The sight came as Scotland - Glasgow in particular - is hit with the most significant snowfall since 2010.

Police said the M80 was blocked for rush hour and much of Wednesday evening with an estimated 1,000 vehicles grinding to halt at the height of the standstill, with tailbacks of approximately eight miles both North and South bound.

Glasgow Airport said it will be closed until 3pm on Thursday following heavy snow showers overnight with a downgraded - but extended - amber weather warning for snow in place.

Motorists are being urged not to travel.
