Police said six other people also suffered injuries after six cars and two lorries collided at around 4.25pm on Monday.

Emergency services are at the scene of the pile-up at the M74 northbound, between Hamilton and Raith Interchange in South Lanarkshire.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said the road would remain closed while  emergency teams continue to work at the scene. A total of five ambulances are in attendance.

Motorists are facing major delays because of the closure.  A  diversion through Hamilton has been put in place.
