The motorway was closed in central Glasgow after a potentially explosive item was found in premises on nearby Milnbank Street.

A section of the M8 was closed after a suspicious package was found in a street nearby.

The mysterious item was discovered within a premises on Milnbank Street in Glasgow at about 5pm on Thursday.
