Two men were taken to hospital last night after a seven-car pile up on the M8.
According to the Scottish Fire and Rescue Services, two cars collided in the middle of the motorway on the west-bound carriageway between East Whitburn and Harthill junctions just before 7pm.
Another five cars then crashed into them and the motorway had to be closed for the emergency services to accommodate the scene.
The two men were taken to hospitals in North Lanarkshire to have their back injuries treated.
No-one else involved was injured.
