A two-day strike by conductors on Arriva Trains Wales services in north Wales has been called off.

The RMT union planned the action after two conductors with nearly 900 days sickness absence were sacked.

The 48-hour action was scheduled to begin on Thursday and affect staff at Holyhead, Chester and Llandudno Junction depots.

However, Arriva Trains Wales said the action has now been "postponed pending further talks".
