Rail services could be affected for several days following a fire at Barmouth Bridge railway viaduct in Gwynedd.

Replacement buses are being used between Barmouth and Tywyn.

Fire crews received a callout to a fire within the bridge structure shortly after 06:00 BST on Tuesday.

Services between Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury may also be affected due to rail staff being displaced, Arriva Trains Wales said.

The affected route is part of the Cambrian Lines which continues to operate as normal between Pwllheli and Barmouth and between Tywyn and Machynlleth.
