Train services between two major Highland locations have been cancelled due to flooding on the line.
The route between Wick and Inverness has been declared unpassable by Scotrail due to heavy rain flooding the line at Ardgay.
Disruption is expected until further notice.
All services between the two stations have been suspended until the water level drops to a more suitable level.
Engineers are currently on-site at Ardgay trying to clear the flooding to get the trains moving again.
The Far North Line is currently closed at Ardgay due to flooding. We believe this has been caused by a nearby burn bursting its banks.
We've got staff monitoring the situation, the latest we have from them is that conditions are improving. pic.twitter.com/5xQzJo8z7F
