COMMUTERS in Renfrewshire have been faced with travel misery this morning after an electrical fault was discovered near Paisley. 

Network Rail engineers have been at the site since 7am, with a falling tree near Elderslie affecting the lines. 

Scotrail staff expect the issues to continue until around 10am, but the tree has now been cleared. 

Services are expected to return to normal over the next hour or so on a train-by-train basis. 

Elsewhere, there was a four car smash on the J27 at Arkleston at around 6.14am this morning. 

The incident has been cleared, but the condition of those in the accident is still unkown. 

Meanwhile, a broken down car on the M8 at J27 Eastbound had forced a lane to be closed earlier this morning, leading to more traffic misery for commuters. 

However, the car has now been cleared and traffic is slowly returning to normal. 

The Met Office has a yellow weather warning in place in Glasgow and the west until midnight (Tuesday), warning of heavy rain and potential flooding. The same alert has been in place since 12.15am on Monday and warns of potential widespread disruption to roads and transport network.
