RAIL passengers on the Inverness-Aberdeen line are facing disruption this morning caused by flooding.

Days of heavy and persistent rain across the north have led to flooding on the line between Aberdeen and Dyce.

"Because of heavy rain flooding the railway between Aberdeen and Dyce Disruption is expected to last until around midday today," said a ScotRail spokesman.

"Train services between Aberdeen and Inverness may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

"For the latest service information, please refer to our app, customer information screens or Journey Check at http://journeycheck.com/scotrail ."

The flooding comes amid two continuing yellow weather warnings for heavy rain, one of which is centred on the Moray Firth and another cover the eastern Aberdeenshire and Angus coasts.

It also follows a separate flooding incident on the Far North Line at Ardgay, which caused disruption to Inverness-Wick services on Wednesday. On Thursday morning ScotRail was reporting Far North Line services running as normal.
