Rail services in Scotland have been disrupted after flooding due to heavy rainfall interfered with signalling operations.
ScotRail reported that flooding caused a signalling fault in the Drem area, as well as “line problems” in the Shotts area, at Inverkeithing and between Edinburgh and Dunblane. A number of trains between Edinburgh and Glasgow Central have also been cancelled due to flooding.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has said that Peebles in the Borders region is “an area of concern” for continued flooding. A number of flood alerts and warnings remain in force in Scotland due to persistent rain.
River levels in Peebles continued to rise throughout this morning. SEPA said there is a potential for some residential impacts. The main impacts of the rainfall elsewhere have been seen on low lying agricultural land, with no residential impacts reported.
