A seaside town's train station has been officially opened, after a £5.2m refurbishment.

A new ticket office, upgraded concourse and new parking spaces are among the improvements at Llandudno's station.

It was built in 1892, and the refit started in 2012.

Finance Minister Jane Hutt, attending the opening, said it will play a "key part" in the town's tourism industry. Network Rail said it remained true to its original Victorian features.

The project received £3.5m of Welsh government and European funding, as well as money from the Department of Transport and the Railway Heritage Trust.
