Motorists in Scotland using the M90 near Perth were faced with long delays and traffic barriers
following a large crash on the stretch of motorway.
The Courier reported that on Tuesday (December 20th) morning commuters heading to Perth were held up in a six-mile tailback near Glenfarg after a four-car collision. Conditions were made worse by black ice in the area.
Bear Scotland, responsible for gritting the country's roads, was criticised for the amount of black ice on the road but the organisation maintained that the road was gritted at 3am on the Monday (December 19th) morning.
Sergeant Alan Pettigrew, of Tayside Police's road policing unit at Perth, said: ''I'm not sure if the collisions were a reaction to the black ice. Part of the problem was rain falling on the roads in the cold conditions so there was a fair bit of disruption, but thankfully no one was injured.''
The winter weather has been causing havoc all over the country but the Met Office expects temperatures to rise in the days before Christmas.
