A crash involving several vehicles caused major rush-hour tailbacks on the M8 in North Lanarkshire.

Police, ambulance and fire crews were called to the scene on the eastbound carriageway at Junction 6 for Newhouse at about 06:30.

One lane had to be closed and traffic was queuing back to Junction 7 at Eurocentral.

Traffic Scotland later said the road had been cleared and restrictions lifted.
