ScotRail's performance continues to rise according to new figures. 

Public performance measure data showed 91.6% of the rail operator's trains arrived at stations within five minutes of their scheduled time in the four weeks to February 4. 

This is the forth period in a row that ScotRail has delivered improved performance. 

The figures were up by 1.9% on the previous four weeks, and 2.3% higher than the same period last year.

Scotland outperformed other parts of the UK, with the annual average for England and Wales remaining at 87.4%.

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said: "Working with the industry, we remain focussed on ensuring the performance improvement plan is implemented effectively and real improvements continue to be seen over the next few months.

"It is also important to recognise the real efforts made by ScotRail staff who are working hard round the clock, in all types of weather, to lift performance and deliver rail services which passengers both desire and deserve."
