Lamington Viaduct: Some of the considerable activity taking place on and around the WCML viaduct at Lamington on the morning of 2 January 2016. Part of the structure has suffered due to the effects of recent heavy rainfall on the fast-flowing River Clyde during storm Frank. At the time of the photograph (1030) the rain had stopped, although surrounding roads and fields were saturated, with flooding apparent in several areas. The line will be closed for some time.
