A FAULTY bus ticket machine caused disruptions for motorists in Dunfermline this morning.

Drivers had to make their way round the Stagecoach bus which had stopped on Hospital Hill.

A spokeswoman for Stagecoach East Scotland said their X55 service was delayed due to the problem with the ticket machine.  

"When the ticket machine was no longer responding the driver was unable to continue on the journey until another machine was provided from the depot nearby," she explained.

"We'd like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by this issue, which was rectified as soon as possible."
