Services on a railway line between Gwynedd and Powys have resumed after they were suspended on Monday when a yacht hit a railway bridge.

The 30ft yacht slipped its moorings and collided with the railway bridge across the Mawddach estuary.

Trains between Barmouth and Machynlleth were cancelled following the incident.

A spokesman for Network Rail said there was no damage to the Cambrian Coast railway line bridge as a result of the collision.
