An elderly woman has been taken to hospital after being injured when a ceiling panel came down at a station.

The passenger was in the corridor at the Dundas Street entrance of Glasgow's Queen Street station when the plasterboard panel collapsed shortly after 11am on Thursday.

She has been taken to hospital with suspected minor injuries, a ScotRail spokesman said.

There are no reports of any other injuries to members of the public.

The ScotRail spokesman said: "An investigation is under way into exactly what happened."

The corridor involved is the one that leads towards the station's low level platforms.

British Transport Police confirmed officers were alerted to the incident at 11.18am.

A spokesman said: "We attended with the Scottish Ambulance Service. An elderly lady was treated for some injuries, not serious.

"She has been taken to hospital just for further assessment. There were no other injuries reported.

"The Office of Rail and Road has been notified."
