Sri Lankans warned off motorways

7:45 am on 24 July 2014

Four members of Sri Lanka's Commonwealth Games cycling team were stopped by police when they were spotted riding down the M74 near Glasgow.

They were seen on one of Scotland's busiest stretches of road at the exit for Motherwell and Hamilton before being told they were breaking the law.

A similar incident happened during the 2002 Games in Manchester when two Kenya cyclists travelled 17 miles down the M61 before being pulled over by police near Bolton.
