Trains stopped running between Edinburgh and Berwick today due to overheard wire problems at Dunbar.

East Coast had to organise replacement bus services for passengers affected by the disruption. Additional services between Berwick and Newcastle were also added to the schedule.

Network Rail said the disruption is expected to continue into the afternoon while it attempts to solve the problem.
