A power cut has caused major travel disruption across Edinburgh.

Tram services were put on hold in the city while airport security was also hit by the outage.

SP Energy Networks said its engineers were working to restore electricity to affected areas.

Much of the city centre was hit by the blackout, while many suburbs were also impacted.

Edinburgh Trams announced its services were fully running at around 5.45pm, however its customer relations department was still without power.

Bus services to the airport were also suspended, with passengers being dropped off and collected at the nearby Hilton Hotel in the meantime.
