A SWAN “just chilling” is causing long queues on the M8 eastbound this morning.

Traffic Scotland alerted its Twitter users to the unusual incident just after 8am.

The team wrote: “#M8 E/B J16 Craighall - lane 3 (Of 4)  due to a swan just chillin on the carriageway. Traffic back to J21 Seaward Street.”

It later emerged the swan was injured and that the Scottish SPCA had been made aware.
