A train station in Glasgow city centre was delayed from opening after a member of staff’s car broke down.

Passengers were told they would need to travel via Glasgow Central low level due to the late opening of the Argyle Street station on Thursday morning.

ScotRail explained the station could not be opened without two staff on duty for “safety and legal reasons”.

In an update at around 7.36am, the rail operator confirmed that the station had been fully opened.

Meanwhile, speed restrictions are in place for safety reasons on some services due to heavy rainfall.

Restrictions have been imposed on the West Highland, Kyle, Stranraer, Dumfries and Wemyss Bar lines.

Some West Highland services will also be replaced by buses, ScotRail said.
