ScotRail has announced that Helensburgh’s railway line has fully reopened after Strom Gerrit caused a full day of disruptions.

Trains on the Helensburgh-Edinburgh and Balloch-Airdrie routes resumed shortly after 10.30am on Thursday.

Services had been suspended on Wednesday morning after a tree fell on to overhead electric wires at Dumbarton East station - and a short time later, flooding forced the closure of the line at Bowling.

A replacement bus service was organised between Helensburgh and Dumbarton until a safety check on Thursday morning, after which it was deemed safe for the railway to reopen.
