Scotrail tweeted: “I've dealt with lost phones, handbags and glasses over the years but this is definitely a first! If you’ve lost your monkey… it’s waiting on the next service from Cambuslang into the town.

The operator added: “It’s good news people. This wee fella has been reunited with his family! Here he is one last time eating a tin of fruit.

“Canny believe he had a tin opener!”
