The bus was not carrying any passengers at the time.

The railway line was closed following the incident but had re-opened by Monday morning.

However, some services were disrupted as trains were out of position.

ScotRail tweeted: "The line between Galashiels & Tweedbank is open again, however, the incident has prevented us from getting some trains to Tweedbank for the start of service this morning."

Replacement bus services were put in place.

Police said investigations into the incident were continuing.
