Courier country pupils are off until Monday at the earliest as the Beast from the East weather continues to blast Tayside and Fife.

Fife was the first to confirm its schools would be closed on Friday, and was soon followed by Perth & Kinross Council.

Angus Council has also decided that its schools should stay closed until the Beast from the East weather conditions improve.

Dundee City Council has waited until early each morning this week before confirming its intentions — drawing criticism from some parents who have urged it to give them as much notice as possible.

However, after the city saw repeated snow showers throughout Thursday the city anounced its decision shortly after 3pm.
