A spokesman for British Transport Police said: “Officers were called to Montrose station at 6.40am this morning (December 20) following reports of a casualty near the tracks.

A Scotrail statement on Twitter said: “Due to emergency services dealing with an incident in the Montrose area, services are unable to call at Montrose station.

“Services booked to start and finish at Montrose will now be started and terminated at Laurencekirk.”

Stagecoach buses are accepting train tickets for travel between Montrose and Dundee.

A witness at Montrose Railway Station said: “I was waiting for a train along with lots of other people.

“The train was never coming and then we were made aware that an incident had happened.
