Two lorry drivers have been reported to the procurator fiscal after their lorries overturned in high winds - despite the roads being closed to high sided vehicles due to weather conditions.

Traffic Scotland posted images of the vehicles lying by the side of the road after their drivers “ignored police advice” by travelling on parts of the A1 on Tuesday.
