There has been some disruption to rail services through Edinburgh Waverley Station after a water pipe burst.

The problem with the water main beside platform 19 has led to trains being re-routed to other platforms.

Virgin Trains posted pictures showing water from the pipe spraying high into the station roof.

The train operator said staff were tackling the leak. It tweeted: "The team there are working to get this plugged ASAP!"
