7.10am - Swirling snow is causing problems for drivers on the A760 between Largs and Kilbirnie.

Even the North Ayrshire Road camera (see picture) cannot show the road because of the problem.

At 7.30am the road was closed.

There are reports of an accident at the Dalry cut-off and a standstill with one motorist urging others to avoid the road at present. 

Transport disruption is expected. A Stagecoach spokesperson said: “ All services operating at this time but subject to delay,diversions or cancellations due to weather forecast.”
