Police have been carrying out security checks at Croy station ahead of the Queen's visit to Cumbernauld.

Bemused passengers took to social media to share their thoughts with a host of trains cancelled as a result of the checks due to the royal visit at the station.

One joked: "Take that flowers! Police Scotland making sure they toe the line for HM Queen arriving at Croy today. Good to know they’re making use of such advanced technology... like broom handles!"

Another added: "Wonder why Croy station was covered in police tape and police everywhere but turns out the Queen is popping to Cumbernauld and coming into Croy station, howling."

Another woman accused ScotRail of lying to customers over why services had been cancelled from the station, while one Twitter user couldn't believe the Queen was going to Croy. 

The Queen is to visit Greenfaulds Hugh School to present awards to pupils.

She will be met by the Lord Lieutenant of Dunbartonshire and the Lord Lieutenant of Lanarkshire as she arrives today.

Pupils will greet her in Gaelic, before a performance by North Lanarkshire Schools' Pipe Band.

Greenfaulds High School is the centre for Gaelic medium education in the council area and currently has around 90 pupils studying the language.

The present school roll is around 1,400 pupils from first to sixth year. Local historians and the head teacher Linda Park will then invite the Queen to view an exhibition about the school's history.

She will also visit the auditorium for a Gaelic poetry recital by pupils from Condorrat Primary School and a Gaelic song will be performed by pupils from East Dunbartonshire String Ensemble.

The Queen will then present awards to pupils and staff before receiving a posy and unveiling a plaque to mark the visit.
