Snow in Dundee on Monday.
Snow in Dundee on Monday.

Snow has closed two Angus primaries and led to school transport disruption across the district.

Angus Council said Isla and Strathmartine primaries will remain shut on Monday as the winter weather increased its grip on the area.

School bus services to Webster’s High in Kirriemuir, Monifieth High, Arbroath Academy, Carnoustie High, Murroes primary and Newtyle nursery have also been affected.

Angus Police described roads across the county as “treacherous”.

They said: “It looks like the snow has finally reached the lower levels as most of us will be waking up to a liberal dusting this morning.

“Roads all across the region are treacherous so please only travel if you absolutely have to, and completely clear your car of snow, not just the windows.”
