Milk spill on M8 after lorry and van crash in West Lothian

About 1,500 litres of milk was spilled onto Scotland's busiest motorway after a lorry overturned in a crash with a van.

Firefighters soaked up the huge spill, between Junctions 2 and 3 in West Lothian, with specially absorbent granules.

The east-bound carriageway was closed for almost four hours following the crash at 02:45.

A man was taken to St John's Hospital in Livingston with minor injuries.

The other driver refused to go to hospital.
