A motorcyclist has sustained serious injuries after being involved in a crash with a bin lorry.

The accident happened at a roundabout in Glasgow on Saturday afternoon.

Police said the 26-year-old biker was riding east on Braidcraft Road when he was involved in a collision with a Glasgow City Council bin lorry at 4.15pm.

Emergency services attended the scene at Braidcraft Roundabout and the man was taken to the city's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for treatment.
