Rail passengers travelling in Tayside and Fife should expect disruption all day today, due to a sinkhole, Network Rail Scotland has said.
Rail operator ScotRail previously said safety inspection work was being carried out in Leuchars, meaning replacement bus services were being provided.
Network Rail has since confirmed a sinkhole has caused a dip to open up below one of the lines at Leuchars, and fixing the problem will last until the end of the day.

It's around a metre deep & will require 3 tonnes of ballast (stones to go below the track) to fill.
