The RNLI has released the first picture of a boat which broke free from its moorings and hit Barmouth railway bridge.

The charity was alerted on Monday evening and officers confirmed there was noone aboard. The vessel was pinned to the bridge by the incoming tide. So they decided to wait until high tide.

The mast eventually broke and the vessel was freed. Train services were temporarily suspended.
