ScotRail was forced to axe all but four services while Glasgow and Edinburgh airports will close this evening.

They have apologised to all customers affected but say "the safety of our passengers and crew remains our number one priority at all times".

We are now scheduled to have departures up to 20:50 tonight.

A spokesman said the extreme conditions over the last three days have seen the airport experience record levels of snow.

Emergency services around the country have been praised for their work overnight as the country braved some of the most severe conditions in decades.

"We will be working very closely with the airlines in terms of them re-scheduling flights for Saturday morning." she added. It was expecting to have departures up to nearly 9pm.

Our expectation is that airlines will run full schedule tomorrow and we continue to work hard to make that possible.

"De-icing of aircraft and snow clearing is now taking place".

All operations will end today at 3pm and hopefully resume on Saturday.

Some of the affected passengers were left stranded at the airport following flight cancellations yesterday, the withdrawal of public bus services in the city, and the inability of taxis to reach the airport given the treacherous road conditions.

Passengers have been reminded that those passengers that have had flights cancelled or heavily delayed are not entitled to cash compensation from their airline, but says that the airline has a duty to provide accommodation and food to travellers.
