Rail passengers have been warned of delays after a person was removed from the tracks between two busy stations.
Shortly after 1pm, ScotRail warned passengers on social media that services running between Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket were not running as police worked to remove a person from the tracks.
At 1.05pm on January 8, the transport operator told customers: “The police are removing a person from the tracks between Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley.
“No trains are currently able to run between these stations until everyone is safely out the way.”
An update was issued at 1.13pm advising that the person had been removed from the tracks, but customers were warned of knock-on delays following the incident.
The update read: “The line between Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley has now reopened following the police removing the person from the tracks.
“As it’s such a busy area, we are expecting knock-on delays for a wee while until crew and trains are back where they should be.”
