Around 1500 litres of milk have been spilt onto the M8 after a lorry overturned.
The spill closed part of the eastbound carriageway of the busy motorway between junctions two and three after a van and the milk lorry crashed.
It took firefighters around three hours to mop up the liquid after the accident just before 3am on Monday.
Two men were injured in the incident and one was taken to St John’s Hospital with minor injuries. The other refused to go to hospital.
Fire crews from three separate stations used "environmental grab bags," devices which can be put on the ground to absorb liquids, to clear up the mess.
The road opened at around 6.30am.
A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue service said: "There was a road accident between a van and a milk lorry. Approximately 1500 litres of milk spilled onto the roadway."
A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Police confirmed officers attended the scene.
