A large pothole caused major disruption on the M8 in central Scotland earlier after puncturing the tyres of at least four vehicles.

Traffic Scotland said the police closed one lane of the eastbound carriageway near J5, Harthill Services.

Road contractor Amey repaired the pothole before 09:00 and the closed lane was reopened.

Traffic was moving slowly for a while as congestion in the area cleared.
