An escaped cow that caused delays during rush hour on the M8 motorway near Glasgow Airport has been captured.
Motorists called police at about 08:10 on Wednesday after spotting the animal near the St James Interchange at J29.
Police and a local farmer eventually captured the cow from behind the barrier on the westbound carriageway.
At the height of the incident, there was a significant delay to westbound traffic with queuing stretching back to J25A near Braehead.
