Broken down train delays travel

A broken down freight train has caused disruption to rail passenger journeys between Inverness and destinations south of the city.

National Express East Coast and First ScotRail services were affected after the breakdown six miles south of Pitlochry, in Perthshire.

National Rail warned of 60-minute delays, as a locomotive was to be sent to move the stranded train.

Early trains from Glasgow to Inverness and Inverness to Edinburgh were hit.

The line was clear by midday.
