Police closed the Kingston Bridge earlier this evening after a man was found on the wrong side of the road. 

The M8 flyover was shut off by cops in both directions.

Motorists travelling in and out of Glasgow are being met with major delays, with those on the bridge stuck in nose-to-tail traffic.

All lanes were closed while officers and negotiators took the man to safety.

He is now in the care of NHS Greater Glasgow after he was taken to Glasgow’s Royal Infirmary.

Police Scotland have advised drivers to avoid the area and follow the appropriate diversions.

A police spokesman said: “Around 8pm tonight, Sunday 14 July 2019, police were called to a man on the wrong side of the the Kingston Bridge northbound. 

“All access to the Kingston Bridge, north and southbound, were closed as a precaution and officers, supported by police negotiators, attended to persuade the man to come down.

“The man was removed from the bridge around 8.35pm and taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he remains in the care of NHS Greater Glasgow.

“The Kingston Bridge is now fully reopened.”
