Delays were caused on a busy stretch of the M74 motorway after reports of a dog “taking control of a tractor”. The incident – highlighted on Twitter by Traffic Scotland – took place at J13 at Abington, South Lanarkshire.  It later emerged that a sheepdog called Don, owned by farmer Tom Hamilton, had leaned on the controls of his utility vehicle, taking it on to the road.  Police and Mr Hamilton later recovered Don, who was unhurt, and the vehicle, from the central reservation.
