Four members of Sri Lanka's Commonwealth Games team sparked a police response after going for a ride down one of Scotland's busiest stretches of motorway.

Four Glasgow 2014 athletes were spotted cycling down the M74 before police intervened near the exit for Motherwell and Hamilton and informed them they were breaking the law.

The junction is close to Strathclyde Park, which hosts the triathlon events on Thursday and Sunday.

Police Scotland confirmed they had been called to a report of four cyclists on the M74 at Junction 6 at around 11.55am today.

A police spokeswoman said: "Police attended. Advice and assistance was given and the cyclists were advised to get off the road."

The spokeswoman confirmed they were from the Sri Lankan team and said the cycles were loaded on to a team vehicle and they left the area.

A similar episode occurred during the Manchester Games in 2002 when two Kenya cyclists travelled 17 miles down the M61 before being pulled over by police near Bolton.
