A major search is under way after a car was found abandoned on the M8 in Glasgow.

Police officers are combing the area near to where the Volvo was found, on the west side of the Kingston bridge.

Specialist police divers are also searching the River Clyde.

Police Scotland said the alarm was raised at 04:15 when they received a report about the car and a man who was standing on the road. However, no trace of the man was found.

Police said an extensive search was carried out which was continuing.

In a statement, the force said: "Although traffic would have been light at that time of the morning, officers are appealing to anyone who may have been driving past and perhaps saw the Volvo or the man to contact them.

"Anyone with any information is asked to call officers at Glasgow city centre police office via 101."
