Woman dies after crashing off M8 near Glasgow

A woman believed to be in her 20s has died after her car crashed off the M8 near Glasgow Airport and hit a tree.

Emergency crews were called to the scene, one mile east of Bishopton, at about 09:40.

Strathclyde Police said the woman appeared to have lost control of the Vauxhall Corsa, went over an embankment and hit a tree. She died at the scene.

The M8 was shut in both directions but has since reopened. Police have appealed for witnesses.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident, near to junction 30 on the motorway.

Officers said the woman would not be named until relatives have been informed.
