Temperatures dropped to freezing last night and are forecast to do so again tonight.
All available gritters – 32 vehicles – were deployed onto Aberdeenshire’s roads and the region’s winter operations team encouraged motorists to drive safely.

A spokesman for the team said: “A very cold Sunday night and Monday morning was forecast.
“Please take care and drive safe on the network.”
The team said they delayed gritting roads in Peterhead and Fraserburgh last night as rain fell in the early evening.
The Met Office said temperatures are expected to fall to freezing at some point between 6pm and 11.30pm today.
