Drivers faced major disruption on the M90 this morning after a car burst into flames.

Emergency services were called to the blaze at junction 2 Pitreavie at 6.40am on Thursday.

As a result, huge tailbacks were caused towards the Queensferry Crossing.

A Traffic Scotland spokesman said: “Traffic is busier than normal due to the junction two off-slip to the A823 being blocked by a car fire.

“Southbound is queuing around J2A and J2 Pitreavie to the Queensferry Crossing.”
