Police have appealed for information after two men sexually assaulted a woman on a train in south Wales.

The victim boarded a train from Cardiff to Fishguard and sat in the back carriage at 4.02pm on Thursday 9 February.

At around 5pm, two men joined the train at Swansea and sat next to her. After it departed Swansea station, the pair started to speak with to woman and tried to engage her in unwanted conversations, police said.

Both men were said to have touched the woman inappropriately on a number of occasions before leaving the train at Llanelli at about 5.20pm, police confirmed.
