Flooding and strong winds have caused disruption on the roads, railways and ferries in north Wales.

A replacement bus service ran instead of trains between Blaenau Ffestiniog and North Llanrwst because of flooding on Friday morning, although trains are now running normally again.

Meanwhile, strong winds caused the speed limit on the A55 Britannia Bridge to be lowered to 30mph.

The 08:45 GMT Dublin to Holyhead ferry was also cancelled.

Elsewhere, flooding has affected gardens in Stanleytown, Ferndale, in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

A request for sandbags was made by residents to Rhondda Cynon Taf council on Thursday evening.
