Disrupted subway service resumes

Subway ticket
SPT said services had been disrupted on Thursday

Services on Glasgow's Subway system have been disrupted after a small crack was discovered on a tunnel wall, BBC Scotland understands.

The crack was found between Bridge Street and West Street.

A spokesman for Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) said it hoped to resume a normal service about 1700 GMT on Thursday.

Limited services were running for most of Thursday between Hillhead and St Enoch and between Ibrox and Partick.

The SPT spokesman added: "Services have been disrupted for most of the day.

"This was due unforeseen technical difficulties in a tunnel between West Street and Bridge Street Subway stations.

"Specialist engineers are still carrying out investigations but we have been assured that a normal service will be resumed by the evening rush hour."
