Drivers were told to avoid a busy Perth road due to heavy traffic on Friday afternoon.
A broken down Tesco lorry caused chaos on Main Street, at Bridgend, on the approach to the city at about 1pm.
Traffic tailed back along Isla Road as a result.
A Perth and Kinross Council spokesman said: “Due to a broken down Tesco lorry at the above location (Main Street, Bridgend), heading into Perth, traffic is queuing back to Isla Road.
“Motorists are advised to take care and avoid the area if possible.”
At 2.15pm the local authority said the lorry had been recovered and the roads back to normal.
