COMMUTERS have felt the full force of Storm Gareth as rail and ferry services in North Ayrshire were cancelled due to gale force winds. 

All train services between Ardrossan and Kilwinning have been cancelled so far today with delays likely throughout the day as the winds continue to cause havoc. 

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald:

Replacement bus services are in place and Scotrail are updating as the weather changes.

Ferry services between Ardrossan and Brodick are cancelled with a review at 12.30pm but operator Calmac say that more cancellations are likely.

Stagecoach are not reporting any major delays but services are likely to be busier as trains are off.
