    The incident occurred after ScotRail cancelled at least 200 trains, including expresses between Edinburgh and Glasgow, due to flooding and landslides on lines. LNER, which runs services between Inverness, Aberdeen, and London, said it was also unable to provide trains north of Edinburgh due to the weather conditions.

    A train derailed near the town of Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, Scotland at around 9.45 am, according to British media reports.

    Several videos posted online show a big cloud of smoke rising above the hills, allegedly coming from the derailed train, while emergency services vehicles and an air ambulance helicopter can be spotted near the site of the incident.
