ScotRail have apologised to rail passengers following major disruption to train services to and from Glasgow Central station over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Saturday night revellers were left stranded and scrambling to find alternative modes of transport after all trains leaving Central were cancelled.

Disruption started on Saturday evening after problems with overhead wires caused delays. The decision was then taken to close the station at around 10pm.

On Sunday afternoon, ScotRail apologised to passengers in a statement on their website, which read: “Severe damage to the overhead wires caused disruption to services to and from Glasgow Central High Level station last night and this morning.

“We’re sorry if your journey was affected by this disruption. Our teams worked as quickly as possible to get trains back to normal.”
