A Glasgow motorist was shocked after witnessing a brazen delivery driver cycling down the M8.

Stewart Vamp was driving along the busy motorway at around 6pm on Wednesday May 15, when he caught the cyclist's bizarre antics on his dash camera.

The images show the cyclist on the hard shoulder near to junction 15 of the motorway, as cars speed past at around 70mph.

Speaking to Glasgow Live, Stewart said: "I was stunned when I seen it. I had just passed under the Sighthill Bridge and spotted the guy on the hard shoulder.

"I couldn't believe it. Just as well he was on the hard shoulder or there could have been a serious crash.

"I'm not sure if the guy realised that he wasn't meant to be there but he kept cycling. He didn't stop.

"I called the police after I got to where I was going and they said they would send officers out immediately."

Police Scotland confirmed to our sister title the incident was reported to them, but they were unable to find the rider.

The news comes after a spate of cyclists have been captured on the busy motorway in recent years. In one incident, which was captured on video, a biker was seen riding along the road at around 3.15pm on Sunday, February 5, last year.

The man, wearing jeans and a puffer jacket but no helmet, was clocked on the five-lane section of the motorway in Glasgow, leaving drivers stunned. The hooded individual is seemingly oblivious to the disbelief around him, as he travels eastbound from junction 15.

In the video, which was taken by an eyewitness and shared on social media and captioned 'only in Glasgow', an Asda bag can be seen hanging over the bike's handlebars as traffic begins to queue behind the cyclist.

Other dangerous incidents have included the bikes being driven over the Kingston Bridge and through the Clyde Tunnel.
