RAIL passengers travelling between Inverness and Edinburgh faced some disruption early on Friday morning after a fault caused two services to start or terminate in Perth.

The 6.36am Inverness to Edinburgh service and the 8.35am Edinburgh to Inverness service were both affected.

The 6.36am was begun in Perth instead of the Highland capital, with ScotRail advising passengers to catch the 7.55am LNER service south instead.

The 8.35am from Edinburgh, meanwhile, is terminating in Perth and will not call at any stations north of that city after it arrives there at 9.52am. It had originally been due to arrive in Inverness at 12.09pm.

No other services are thought to be affected.
