ScotRail has apologised after two services on the new Borders Railway were cancelled due to overcrowding.

Passenger numbers on the Tweedbank to Edinburgh line have increased during the October holidays, according to the rail franchise.

The trains were cancelled on Wednesday and replaced by a bus service.

Earlier this month the new line was hailed a “soaraway success”, after more than 125,000 journeys were made during its first month.
