Passengers on Edinburgh's tram network are currently unable to reach the airport due to flooding caused by Storm Ciara on Sunday afternoon.

Edinburgh Trams said "significant surface water" at the airport station was causing the disruption.

A spokeswoman for Edinburgh Trams said: "“With the ongoing severe weather conditions of Storm Ciara and last night’s heavy rainfall we are currently running between York Place and Gyle. There is significant surface water at the Airport Tram Stop and we are currently working to disperse this.
