It has issued a full list of services affected, which we’ve published in full below.

A week-long strike by Stagecoach bus drivers is already under way and is due to continue until Saturday, with only a very limited number of services running.

Motorists have also been warned about a number of road closures and slow-moving traffic due to the treacherous conditions.
