An elderly couple were taken to hospital after a two-car crash on the M9 at Stirling.

The accident happened at about 10:45 between junctions 10 and 11, near the Keir Roundabout.

Both vehicles left the road and went down an embankment following the crash.

A police spokesman said the couple had been taken to Forth Valley Royal Infirmary, but their injuries were not thought to have been as serious as first feared.

The eastbound carriageway was closed at the Keir Roundabout, but reopened at about 16:30.
