TRAVELLERS in the north-east of Scotland have faced disruption this afternoon after cattle invaded the line near Laurencekirk.
ScotRail say a service heading to London hit one of the animals near the Aberdeenshire village and that the line towards Dundee from Aberdeen is blocked.
Work is ongoing to reopen the line with replacement buses also in operation.
