Fares on Arriva Trains Wales (ATW) services have risen along with other rail operators across England and Wales.

Passengers will see the cost of regulated fares rise by 2.5% or 10p - whichever is the greater.

An ATW spokesman said a 10p increment "can sometimes mean that the very lowest fares increase by more than 2.5%, which is permitted".

First Great Western fares between south Wales and London have also gone up.

Across England and Wales, regulated fares - including season tickets - have risen by up to 2.5%, while the average fare of a rail ticket has increased by 2.2%.
