The accidents, which are not thought to have been serious, were described by police as "slide and shunt" incidents.

The road, which was closed between 6.00 and 7.30am, was re-opened after it had been gritted, say police.

Drivers are still urged by police to "take care on the roads" and to not leave their "car defrosting unattended".
