Arriva Trains Wales says it's extending its mobile ticketing system across the country after a successful trial on the Cardiff and Valleys network.

It says customers can make savings using Mobile Multi-flex ticket - the first mobile ticketing system of its kind in the UK.

Tickets can be bought, through an app, to travel between any two places and can be stored on a smartphone for up to three months after the date of purchase.

...we are always trying to understand the needs of our passengers and with the majority of UK employees (77 per cent) working in organisations that provide some kind of flexible working, we had a strong desire to reward loyal users of our trains who do not travel on our services regularly enough to benefit from the savings provided by a normal season ticket.

Newport homeowner conned in washing machine scam

A homeowner from Newport has been conned after receiving a scrapped washing machine.

On the 1st of May two men delivered the appliance to an address on Constable Drive in Newport.

The homeowner was led to believe via the advert online they had bought a good condition second hand white good.

Once the men dropped off the machine they left the address quickly in a small white van.

However, when the wrapping was removed the washing machine delivered is believed to be a scrapped machine which was in very bad condition.

The victim has tried to make contact with the seller but the number on the advert rings through to an answerphone message.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident please contact Gwent police on 101 quoting log 310 01/05/16.
