A spokesman for the force said the road was closed off after a car crashed into a parked vehicle, resulting in a large oil spill on the road.

An occupant of the crashed car was also arrested as there had been an outstanding warrant out for his arrest from Fife.

The police spokesman described it as a “minor collision” and said no one was injured as a result.
