Rail passengers travelling to and from stations in Glasgow’s southside this morning have seen their commute disrupted by escaped Highland cows.
The animals, thought to be from a herd at Pollok Park, blocked the line at Busby and Pollokshaws West.
UPDATE: It's not safe to attempt to pass the area at the moment. In this picture, you can see trains on both tracks are being held. We really appreciate your patience if you're on board either train or at a station waiting. Sorry. ^CT pic.twitter.com/8i08s5yeiZ

With the assistance of Glasgow City Council and Network Rail staff, the animals were cleared from the track and out of the way of trains just before 10am.
ScotRail tweeted: “Cattle now in a place of safety, clear of the railway, so we’ll be able to get trains back on the move.”
Glasgow City Council tweeted: “The coos have retrieved and moooved back to Pollok Park. Our cooncil team are checking where the breach in the fence was. Maybe they just needed a wee calf!!”
