Road trip for storm-hit Barmouth marooned trains

Two trains marooned on a railway line during storms that hit the mid and north Wales coast are being moved by road for safety checks.

Arriva Trains Wales decided to move the trains because they have been stranded at Barmouth since the Cambrian Coast line was damaged on 3 January.

The sea wall was washed away at nearby Llanaber with 300 tonnes of ballast lost to the sea.

The line is still closed and buses are operating instead of trains.
