Drivers heading both into and out of Fife faced delays this morning after three crashes involving 10 vehicles.

Police held back traffic in both lanes to deal with a 7-vehicle crash at 6.30am this morning around J1C.

Three vehicles were then involved in a seperate accident around J2 at 6.40am.

As a result, drivers were forced to use the hard shoulder to pass the incident.

Following a response from police, officers were forced to close the lanes around 7am to allow emergency services to help a driver exit a vehicle as a result of the crash.

It is understood one driver in the incident involving three vehicles was taken to hospital.

Prior to the incidents at 6:30am and 6:40am on the M90, a Honda civic and an Astra were involved in a crash at 5:35am with both drivers taken to Victoria Hospital in Kircaldy.

According to reports, one vehicle was turned over as a result of the crash.

The road has now been cleared.
