SCOTRAIL has issued a warning to Glasgow customers after four people were hospitalised due to an escalator issue.

It was previously reported that the escalator at Argyle Street station malfunctioned on Wednesday morning, causing five people to be injured.

Four were rushed to hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Rail bosses have released a statement warning travellers that the escalator is still out of use and have urged people to use Glasgow Central instead if they have limited mobility or breathing difficulties and may struggle with the stairs at Argyle Street. 

Those travelling with prams, luggage and small children are advised to do the same. 



A spokesperson for the British Transport Police said: "Officers received a report that an escalator had malfunctioned at Argyle station shortly after 9am this morning [Wednesday, May 17].

"Five people were treated for minor injuries and four of those were taken to hospital.

"The Office of Road and Rail have been notified of the incident."
