Sri Lankan cyclists on motorway spark police response

Four members of Sri Lanka's Commonwealth Games cycling team caused a police response after being spotted going for a ride down one of Scotland's busiest stretches of motorway.

STV News reported that four Glasgow 2014 athletes were seen cycling down the M74 before police intervened and informed them they were breaking the law.

Johnathan Brownlee, the 2012 Triathlon World Champion, snapped the cyclists before tweeting: "I suppose it's a nice wide road!"

The triathlete's brother Alistair Brownlee tweeted a second picture of the team members.

A police spokeswoman said: "Police attended. Advice and assistance was given and the cyclists were advised to get off the road."

The spokeswoman confirmed they were from the Sri Lankan team and said the cycles were loaded on to a team vehicle and they left the area.
