Flooding and Cardiff signal delays for rail travellers

Rail passengers have faced difficult conditions in south Wales on one of the busiest weekends of the year.

Flooding halted services on part of rail network in south Wales on Saturday and causing a signal problem in Cardiff that left trains stranded at the platforms.

For a while, Arriva Trains Wales was advising passengers not to travel at all, although services were resuming in the afternoon.

The disruption left many people at Cardiff Central railway station waiting either to catch a train themselves or meet loved ones caught up in the delays.

Hywel Griffith spoke to some of them.
