The Carter Bar on the A68.

More than 20 school buses have been cancelled and another four are running behind schedule.

Drivers are being advised to take care throughout the central Borders and although gritters are out, there’s lying snow on some roads.

The A68 at both Carter Bar and Soutra are white and the A699 St Boswells to Selkirk road is proving difficult for drivers.

There are also reports of cars struggling on the A7 at higher points near Mosspaul and Ashkirk.

All schools are open as normal.
