West Coast mainline closed to all trains after major flooding
Torrential overnight rain has forced the closure of the main railway line between Glasgow and London.
Heavy rain has flooded a section of the West Coast mainline between Lockerbie and Carlisle, blocking routes on Saturday and causing chaos for weekend rail travellers going to and from Scotland.
Network Rail Scotland said water levels were a foot above the tracks.
In a tweet, the railway network manager said: "We are currently making arrangements for 5 trains currently in the area which are trapped or blocked by a flood between #Lockerbie & #Carlisle."
