VIDEO: Blizzards, freezing temperatures and sledging as “Beast from the East” hits Dundee

The “Beast from the East” well and truly landed in Dundee on Thursday, bringing with it freezing temperatures and blizzards which forced the closure of all local schools.

Though the roads and shops of the city centre were practically deserted for most of the day, it didn’t stop locals from taking part in the odd snowball fight or sledgers from making their way to Camperdown Park.
