Arriva Trains Wales: RMT Union strike called off

Arriva Trains Wales says a strike, due to hit services in North Wales, has been called off.

Members of the RMT union, at three depots including Holyhead and Llandudno Junction, were due to walk out tomorrow and Friday.

Talks will resume to resolve the dispute.

The strikes would have hit services in North Wales.

"We are pleased to announce that the RMT Industrial Action planned for Thursday 23 and Friday 24 October in North Wales and the surrounding area has been postponed pending further talks.

We look forward to reopening discussions with the RMT in the presence of ACAS to resolve these issues as we are keen to avoid any further disruption to our services for our customers in the future. Again we would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience that the past industrial action may have caused."

– Lynne Milligan, Customer Service for Arriva Trains Wales

Derailment hits train services

Network Rail says there was a derailment in the early hours of this morning at Porthkerry in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Two wagons of a freight train came off the rails and accident investigators are at the scene.

Nobody was hurt but services between Bridgend and Barry have been suspended. A bus service has been introduced.

There is no word yet on when train services will resume.

Trains: Arriva Trains Wales

There's disruption on Arriva Trains Wales services between Pontypridd and Aberdare and between Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil.

It's because of a signalling problem between Pontypridd and Abercynon.

An hourly service is running instead of a half hourly one, and cancelled trains are being replaced by buses.

Services that do run may be delayed by up to 15 minutes. Arriva Trains Wales expect normal service to resume at around 12:00
