AS WINTER weather is forecast for most of the week, driving conditions across the isles remain challenging.

Police said they had no accident reported to them over the weekend apart from a one vehicle collision on the A970 north of the Sandwater junction on Friday evening at around 8pm.

A Nissan Leaf was severely damaged when it left the road and landed in the ditch. The male driver sustained just minor injuries.

He was taken to the Gilbert Bain Hospital in Lerwick for a check-over by a passer-by, police said.

And, according to police reports a black Vauxhall Astra was involved in a single vehicle collision at the northend of the Girlsta 50mph stretch at 10.45am on Monday. No one was said to be injured in the crash and the driver was arranging their own vehicle recovery.

Meanwhile Shetland Islands Council has warned that household waste collection may be delayed for some due to the cold weather.

“Collections from some side roads may not be possible due to road conditions. We apologise for the inconvenience” the SIC said on Twitter.
