Glasgow train services have been disrupted due to a 'sinkhole' on the line.

ScotRail has said due to reports of the issue between Caldercruix and Drumgelloch in Airdrie, both lines have been closed.

According to the travel firm's website, services between Helensburgh and Edinburgh - which pass through Glasgow Queen Street - have been cancelled this morning after Coatdyke.

The company has said passengers can travel on alternative routes including the Balloch to Airdrie line and the Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh via Falkirk High service.

Meanwhile, ScotRail has said services between Helensburgh and Edinburgh will run between Helensburgh and Airdrie and between Bathgate and Edinburgh in both directions.

However, no train services will run between Airdrie and Bathgate - instead a replacement bus will run this leg of the journey.

Rail staff are on site trying to resolve the issue, however, Network Rail has said disruption can be expected until the end of the day.



A spokesperson for ScotRail said: "Due to a report of a sinkhole between Caldercruix and Drumgelloch, both lines are closed.

"Staff are on-site and we'll share more information once we have it.

"Customers can travel on alternative routes."

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Network Rail added: "We're responding to reports of a sinkhole between Caldercruix and Drumgelloch.

"We've had to close both lines for safety whilst an in-depth investigation takes place.

"Here's an image of the sinkhole, though not the best quality so we'll try and get some better ones for you.

"It's around a metre deep.

"Disruption is likely to last until the end of the day."
