PASSENGERS had to be evacuated from a train near Cupar station in Fife after a fire started underneath one of the carriages.

ScotRail say services between Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh will be disrupted until at least 5pm.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson told our sister title The Courier that all passengers were safely off the train and accounted for.

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “Officers are at Cupar station along with Scottish Fire and Rescue after a small fire was reported under a train. There are no reported injuries.”



One passenger posted on Twitter: “Just been evacuated off the to Edinburgh at Cupar. Hat off to the conductor who has been absolutely super in her quick yet relaxed approach to keeping everyone safe!”
