Strike action which would have crippled rail services in Scotland during COP26 has been called off after the RMT accepted a new pay deal.

The union said the offer will provide them with a one year 2.5% pay rise, improved conditions and a COP payment for all ScotRail staff.

The deal means all action ends for the union, including Sunday strikes which have been taking place since March.

Transport Scotland and ScotRail have been approached for comment.
