A lorry travelling over the Erskine Bridge was stopped in its tracks by road cops. 

Officers from Police Scotland's Road Policing Unit in Dumbarton pulled the HGV over on Tuesday, March 26 after noticing a bulge in its side.

It is understood that the vehicle had an unsafe load which had moved during transit. 

Following a check of the lorry police say they also discovered a cut on the side wall of one of its tyres. 

The vehicle was prohibited from moving until these issues were sorted.
