Train services were disrupted in Glasgow after a vehicle struck a railway bridge in the southside of the city.
Shortly before 3pm on Monday, ScotRail advised customers that services between Glasgow Central and Neilston stations were disrupted after a vehicle struck a bridge in the Muirend area.
The strike occurred between Muirend and King’s Park stations.
Services were cancelled until Network Rail engineers were able to inspect the bridge and deem it safe for trains to cross.
ScotRail tweeted: “We’ve had reports of a vehicle striking a bridge in the Muirend area. The bridge will need to be examined by engineers before services can pass over the bridge again.
“Glasgow Central/Neilston services will be cancelled until we can be sure it’s safe for them to resume.”
Network Rail confirmed at 4.15pm that the bridge had been inspected and that the lines had reopened.
It added: “A large vehicle has struck a bridge between Muirend and Kings Park. We’ve closed the line between Glasgow Central and Neilston until we can be sure the bridge is safe for trains to cross.”
A short time later the company apologised to passengers “who have been disrupted by yet another bridge strike on Scotland’s railway”.
Police Scotland has been contacted for comment.
The bridge strike comes a day after ten people were taken to hospital after a double-decker bus struck a bridge on Cook Street in Glasgow.
Roads in the area were closed and rail services were disrupted for several hours while emergency services attended the scene and Network Rail engineers inspected the bridge.
