Footage shows snowy Dundee’s streets practically deserted during rush hour

Dundee’s streets were practically deserted on Thursday morning during what is traditionally one of the busiest times of the day for traffic.

There were few cars taking to the city’s streets as a result of the “Beast from the East”, which brought several inches of snow to the area and forced all local schools to close their doors.

Many adults were unable to reach workplaces with all Dundee and Angus College campuses and centres closed once again.

Dundee University remained open but with “reduced services”, though the Institute of Sport and Exercise (ISE) was shut.

Abertay University cancelled all classes and events, though the campus and library remains open to students.  Staff were told not to travel and to work from home if possible.

Roads in neighbouring Perthshire and Fife have been forced to close due to the weather.
