A train drivers' dispute over pay and conditions is continuing with a second Sunday overtime ban by rail union Aslef.

Aslef members held an overtime ban on 27 Feb, the day before a 24-hour strike halted Arriva Trains Wales services across the south Wales valleys.

Arriva Trains Wales said none of its services would run this Sunday, but a limited bus service would be operated.

First Great Western, Cross County and Virgin Trains services will not be hit.

Rail union officials are to meet Arriva Trains Wales managers after a drivers' strike stopped its services on Monday.

ATW said its pay offer of 12% over two years would bring drivers' salaries to £39,117 for a 35-hour, four-day average week and remained available for discussion.

Aslef says Welsh drivers are paid less than their English counterparts.
