The Met Office and police have issued a weather warning to drivers in Scotland after three cars collided with crash barriers on Tuesday morning (December 20th).

Sleet and snow are expected for the Scottish Highlands and weather experts have issued a yellow "be aware" warning for motorists driving in Moray, Aberdeenshire, Central, Tayside and Fife.

Highland council officials described the roads in the area as "treacherous".

A spokesman for the organisation said: "The rain yesterday washed away the salt that was on the road and the early morning drop in temperature resulted in treacherously icy conditions. We have every machine at our disposal treating our roads, with bus and main routes given priority."

The accidents occurred on the A9 at Crubenmore where three cars were flipped over the crash barriers after skidding on black ice on the road.

Involved in the crash was a dog that escaped out of a Mitsubishi Challenger and ran across the road causing two other vehicles to collide with the barriers.
