A police incident has closed the main rail line between Aberdeen and Glasgow for several hours on July 5.

Passengers are being told to use an alternative form of transport.

It is understood the line was closed due to the death of a man in Angus.

A ScotRail spokesman said: “The police are dealing with an incident near the railway between Arbroath-Montrose.

“Services between Glasgow Queen St-Aberdeen and Edinburgh-Aberdeen will be subject to delays, alterations and cancellations.”

He continued: “Due to the complexity of the incident the police have advised the line may be closed for some time.

The 1.50pm Aberdeen to Glasgow Queen Street service is currently at Montrose. Once this service returns to Aberdeen we will be able to reinstate some services between Aberdeen and Montrose.

The spokesman said tickets for rail travel were being accepted on bus services.

At around 12am on Wednesday, July 6, it was announced that trains would operate on the line again with no disruption to future services.
