Rail commuters travelling on one of Scotland's busiest routes have faced major disruption after a signalling fault led to widespread cancellations.

ScotRail said the fault occurred at about 07:30 at Polmont and was affecting services to Glasgow Queen Street, Edinburgh, Perth and Dunblane.

Services through Falkirk High were cancelled during the rush hour period.

ScotRail later said services had resumed but some cancellations and delays were expected.

Travellers from Falkirk High were asked to consider using Falkirk Grahamston Station instead.

People travelling from Glasgow Queen Street to the capital were also advised to use services via Airdrie and Bathgate or the low level service.

ScotRail said those travelling between Edinburgh and Stirling were able to use First Bus service number 38 with their rail ticket.
