The queue of traffic was caused by broken down car left on the A801 with its hazard lights on near the bridge which connects Falkirk district and West Lothian.

Motorists heading from West Lothian along the A801 in the direction of Maddiston and the Bowhouse Roundabout were facing queues of up to 20 minutes, as traffic tailed back to overtake the vehicle, which was left near the entrance of Candie Farm, Avonbridge.

The stationary car had still to be moved just before 9am.
