Rail passengers faced delays after a man was hit by a train in Carmarthenshire.

British Transport Police (BTP) said the man was found injured after being struck at Burry Port station at about 14:45 GMT on Saturday.

He was airlifted to hospital by helicopter.

People using Arriva Trains Wales services between Manchester Piccadilly and Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock and Fishguard Harbour were affected.

Some local services in Carmarthenshire were cancelled but Arriva Trains Wales said services were later running normally.

Limited replacement bus services were also put in place.

BTP is investigating but said the incident was not being treated as suspicious.
