HOUSE­HOLD­ERS across the west of Scot­land were stuck with over­flow­ing bins as refuse lor­ries were frozen out of icy streets by the big chill.

Plung­ing tem­per­a­tures badly hit wheelie bin col­lec­tions at their busiest time af­ter the fes­tive sea­son.

It led to rub­bish pil­ing up on housing es­tates across the coun­try. Refuse ve­hi­cles were strug­gling to cope with icy snow­packed side roads but house­hold­ers were told not to “panic”.
