Rail passengers are facing disruption on Tuesday due to an emergency incident between Dundee and Arbroath.
In an update to customers, ScotRail said that due to an “emergency incident” between the stations, services running between Edinburgh/Glasgow Queen Street and Aberdeen are suspended.
The rail operator later added that disruption was expected to last until 3pm on Tuesday, September 5.
ScotRail advised that customers will be able to travel on services via Inverness but significant time will be added to journeys.
Following the disruption, ticket acceptance with Stagecoach East on service 73/A between Dundee and Arbroath is in place in both directions.
There is also ticket acceptance with CityLink on the M9 and M92 between Aberdeen and Dundee.
Shortly after 12pm ScotRail confirmed that mutual ticket acceptance has been agreed with LNER.
Both LNER and ScotRail customers can travel on any available service between Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “Officers were called to Balmossie station at 10.35am today (September 5) following reports of a casualty on the tracks.
“Paramedics also attended however sadly a person has been pronounced dead at the scene.
“The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be prepared for the Procurator Fiscal.”
