In Edinburgh there’s a set of temporary traffic lights in Bonnyrigg high street, and there’s a deer on the loose in the Strathearn Road area in Marchmont.

Queues are building on Broughton Road due to temporary lights at Rodney Street.

For those walking to work, the north footway and eastbound bus stop between York Lane and Broughton Street are closed. A diversion is in place via the south footway.

Scotrail have reported that the Edinburgh to Queen Street service at 08.15 will only have three carriages due to a train fault.
