Around 30 passengers were evacuated during a train fire at the railway station in Deganwy, Conwy.

Two fire crews were called to deal with the blaze from a melted exhaust bracket on the train.

Rail services in and out of the station were halted during the incident at around 14:30 BST on Friday. No injuries were reported.

Arriva Trains Wales said replacement bus services were provided before rail services resumed.

A spokesperson said: "We can confirm that due to a technical problem with the exhaust, smoke entered the carriage of the 14:08 Llandudno to Llandudno Junction service and the service was terminated at Deganwy station.

"Around 30 passengers were transferred safely to a bus for the rest of their journey. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
