A man who jumped from a moving car on the M8 in Glasgow has died after being hit by a bus.

Lyle Rushbury, 23, got out of the Peugeot E7 private hire cab, as it was travelling west, near J15 Townhead, at about 00:30.

Mr Rushbury, from Stepps, was then struck by a bus. Paramedics later pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police want to speak to anyone who was in a vehicle in the area at the time, particularly passengers on the bus.

Insp Janet Dickie said: "There would have been other cars driving on the motorway around the time of this incident and it is important we speak to anyone who witnessed what happened.

"In particular we would like to speak to any passengers on the bus involved who may have information to assist with our inquiries."
