TRAINS are set to resume via Dalmarnock station after earlier heavy flooding.

Diversions had to be put in place around 7pm in both directions as a result of severe rainfall causing the tracks at the station, to the eastend of Glasgow, to become dangerously waterlogged.

Around 9.30pm tonight, ScotRail confirmed that the flooding had eased. 

Network Rail engineers had been sent in to pump water off the tracks. 

A CCTV picture posted on the operator's Twitter earlier showed the rails completely submerged.
