The M8 has fully reopened after a lorry overturned in Glasgow, causing major delays during morning rush hour.

Police said the lorry hit the central barrier at J8 Baillieston, at about 05:54. No other vehicles were involved.

The lorry driver was cut free by a team of 15 firefighters and treated for minor injuries at Monklands Hospital.

The M8 was closed eastbound for some time with traffic diverted via the M73. There is still congestion in the area even though the carriageway is clear.
