Officers “sprung into action” to remove a discarded mattress which was blocking the busy M74 on Friday.
At around 10.30am on Friday morning, Traffic Scotland reported that a mattress had been spotted on the motorway, between Junctions 1 and 2 southbound.
Not ones to take it lying down, road policing officers were dispatched to the scene.
The issue was resolved by 10.40am.
The Traffic Scotland social media team quipped: “The incident has now been put to bed.”
