The Scottish Environment Protection Agency said it was in talks with contractors - the Scottish Roads Partnership joint venture - carrying out the project to see if work was in line with laws designed to prevent avoidance of landfill tax,

A spokesman said: "We have been investigating a complaint made regarding a deposit of waste, to form temporary roads at Aitkenhead Road, Uddingston, associated with the M73/M8 upgrade works.

" We are in discussion with the operator and assessing whether a breach of environmental legislation has occurred."
