Photos: Cars Buried Overnight In Huge Snow Drifts Near Buckie

Cars have been buried overnight under huge banks of drifting snow blown from fields next to the A98 in Moray. The vehicles were trapped as gale-force winds carried mud-coloured waves of snow onto the road near Buckie. Snow ploughs were used to try and clear the stretch, close to its junction with the B9016, but were unable to make it through and the road remains closed. Elsewhere in the north east, stretches of the A90, A95 and A96 were also closed overnight due to drifting snow.
