RAIL passengers across Inverclyde will have extra services available from next week.

ScotRail is increasing the number of trains it runs from Monday.

It says services are being reinstated to help with the expected increase in passengers now that schools are set to reopen.

Passengers travelling on the Gourock and Wemyss Bay lines are reminded that they must continue to wear a face covering in stations and on trains.

People are still being urged to consider alternative travel options where possible.

A minimum of one metre physical distancing is now being enforced in trains and at stations.
