The Glasgow Film Festival has announced a return to normal today following two days of severe diruption caused by snow.

Most Q&As scheduled to take place today have been cancelled, but writer Bernard MacLaverty will still attend to talk about his 1984 film, Cal.

The Frightfest team, who were stranded in Preston yesterday when their train from London was unable to get any further, managed to obtain a vehicle and drove into Glasgow today, less than an hour before their first film was due to screen. There are still expected to be some guests present at Frightfest events but Q&As there have officially been cancelled..

The amber warning from the Met Office applied to the Glasgow area was today downgraded to a yellow alert for snow. Traffic is returning to normal but drivers are advised to take extra care. Limited bus services are in operation but remain subject to change.
