Rail and road transport networks across Scotland were hit by heavy flooding after thunderstorms swept across the county.

Trains between Glasgow and Edinburgh were cancelled after waterlogged tracks in near the Winchburgh tunnel on Wednesday. The disruption came amid a busy Edinburgh Festival Fringe season and with thousands of music fans heading to Princes Street Gardens to see Florence + The Machine.
