First Scotland East pperations director, David Phillips said: “First Scotland East services face major disruptions s due to the extreme weather effects of the ‘Beast from the East’ snowstorm.

“A number of routes have been badly effected and our drivers are doing their very best to operate despite some buses getting stuck in the snow or moving slowly in very testing road conditions.

“The safety of our staff and customers is our number one priority and any alterations to services will only be made where their safety is potentially compromised.”
