Heavy snow fell across parts of Britain on Monday (January 14), causing travel disruption for motorists in Scotland. More snow was expected through the country later in the day. Snow which fell over the weekend in Scotland is expected to linger. Queues of vehicles could be seen as motorists drove slowly on slippery roads. In some areas, it was hard work to keep roads open. Motoring organizations have urged road users to take care. The weather office has upgraded its "cold weather action" warning to level three - one underneath a national emergency - for all of England, urging social and healthcare services to target specific actions at high-risk groups.
