TRAINS travelling to and from Ayr are delayed this morning due to a cow on the line near Lochwinnoch.

Services all through Ayrshire are affected as Scotrail staff try to remove the animal from the tracks.

Scotrail have said they expect knock on delays for around the next hour and passengers have been left stranded as staff try and move the animal.

Scotrail tweeted: "We've now got staff on site working on getting the cow away from the line so we can run trains normally."
