Cambrian Coast rail flood repairs at Barmouth and Pwllheli to take months

The Cambrian Coast railway line may not fully reopen for another four months as repairs after tidal storms continue, Network Rail says.

It is closed between Dovey Junction and Pwllheli in Gwynedd due to flood damage at Tywyn, Barmouth and Criccieth.

Engineers used a helicopter to conduct an aerial survey showing the line north from Barmouth to Pwllheli suffered the "most devastating damage".

Matthew Richards reports.
