The Met Office have issued an amber weather warning for very strong winds ahead of Storm Isha today, raising concern that winds of up to 70-80mph could blow trees and other large items on to the railway.


The rail operator has advised that safety checks will need to be made to ensure there is no damage before services resume on Monday along the affected routes.

Ticket restrictions on ScotRail services for today have also been lifted so that passengers can travel before or after the weather hits.

A statement on ScotRail website has advised: "If you want to delay your journey, tickets dated January 21 will be accepted for travel on January 22 and 23.

"Anyone who is unable to use their tickets, or has made alternative arrangements, is entitled to a full refund on their unused train tickets. Just visit our refunds page to claim.

"Customers who travel but arrive over 29 minutes late to their destination are also entitled to money back under our Delay Repay guarantee. To claim this, keep hold of your ticket (or save a copy on your phone if it's an mTicket) and visit our Delay Repay site.

"As always, if you have to travel during extreme weather, we recommend you check your journey before setting off. You can do this via ScotRail App or Journey Check.

"Plus, you can get the latest updates when you follow us on social media @ScotRail."
