ROAD: HAZARDOUS WEATHER CONDITIONS

Police are warning motorists that several roads in the region are suffering hazardous conditions.

There's heavy snow reported on A74 northbound at junction 15 and black ice on the A76 near Auldgirth.

Ice has also been reported on the A713 north of Carsphairn.

Stopping distance is increased in snow and ice so allow extra distance to the vehicle in front.

"Ease your foot off the clutch gently to avoid wheel spin and do not brake heavily as this will lock your wheels and increase skidding.

"Consider driving in a lower gear."Reduce your speed and take care when out on the road."
