In pictures: Scotland shivers again
Much of Scotland woke to find itself under a thick blanket of snow on Monday, which has been causing misery for commuters and joy for the thousands of children who saw their schools closed.

The situation is forecast to get worse before it gets better, with another couple of inches of snow expected in many parts of the country.
