PASSENGERS using public transport in Inverclyde are being urged to check before they travel as services recover from the high winds brought by Storm Isha overnight.

According to the Met Office, gusts of up to 75mph were recorded in the area in the early hours of this morning.

A yellow weather warning is due to remain in place until 12pm on Wednesday.

ScotRail services across Scotland have been cancelled since 7pm yesterday, with no rush hour trains running this morning.

Rail bosses say all lines must be inspected for debris, fallen trees and damage to overhead power lines before services can resume.

Network Rail Scotland said: “Given the number of issues dealt with last night, and damage to infrastructure we already know of, such as fallen trees, and overhead wire damage in at least 20 separate locations, reopening Scotland’s Railway is going to be a challenge.

“We’ll keep you updated on progress.”

Some ferry services in Inverclyde have resumed this morning after being suspended yesterday evening.

Western Ferries’ sailings returned to timetable from 6.45am, with CalMac’s Gourock-Dunoon route being served by one vessel since around 6am.

The latter will be reviewed at 10am as the ferry operator seeks to return to a two-vessel service.

CalMac’s Gourock-Kilcreggan service remains suspended and will be reviewed at 12pm.

McGill’s Buses says most of its services are running as normal, with the exception of some diverted routes.

The 1/1A cannot currently serve Quarriers Village, with the 330A missing out Maple Road.

The 532 is also diverted and cannot serve Glenhuntly for the time being.
