Delays after woman killed by train between Dyce and Inverurie

Train services were affected after a woman was struck and killed on the line in Aberdeenshire.

The incident happened shortly before 08:50 on Thursday at Kintore.

The line later re-opened at about 11:40, with services said to be running as booked.

The Scottish Ambulance Service told the BBC Scotland news website a crew had been called to the scene in case anyone on board, including the driver, needed treatment.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesperson confirmed: "BTP officers were called to the line in Kintore at 8.49am, following a report that a female had been struck and killed by a train.

"There would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death and a full report will be submitted to the local procurator fiscal."
