There were tailbacks on the southbound carriageway of the Aberdeen to Dundee route at the Spittalburn junction after the barrel broke loose and lodged under a lorry at about 09:45.

Firefighters and an ambulance crew joined the police at the scene, and the road was closed briefly.

Officers have appealed for information about the driver of the transit van.
