A NUMBER of ScotRail services to and from Alloa will be cancelled or delayed after a person was struck by a train. 

The incident took place on the tracks between Glasgow Queen Street and Lenzie, with knock-on effects for the rest of the Glasgow-to-Alloa line.

Disruption is expected to last until around 3pm today, with those travelling on the network urged to check plan their journey in advance.

A statement from ScotRail read: "Unfortunately, we have had reports of a person being struck by a train between Queen St. and Lenzie. Because of this, services will be disrupted.
