Falkirk area rail service back to normal

Rail services have returned to normal on the Stirling to Edinburgh line after a vehicle hit a bridge in Falkirk.

The excavator, which was on the back of a low-loader, struck the rail bridge at Ladysmill around lunchtime.

All services on the line were stopped while engineers carried out an inspection to see if there was any damage.
