Commuters were left stranded for around 20 minutes after trains were unable to stop at Haymarket this morning.

A power cut which hit the station at around 6am saw all station lighting go out, meaning trains could not call at the station.

ScotRail said: "Services are currently unable to call at Haymarket due to the station lighting failing. All services to/from Edinburgh are running normally otherwise."

There were also reports of traffic lights and the Edinburgh Tram stop outside the station suffering from the power cut.
