Services on the Conwy Valley line have been cancelled as more trains than usual need repairs at the same time.

Arriva Trains Wales says services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog have been stopped due to a lack of rolling stock.

Replacement bus services will run in both directions on Thursday to replace the 11 trains that normally operate on the 27-mile single-line service.

Arriva has apologised to passengers for the cancellations.

"We are working extremely hard to get all our trains back into service as soon as possible," claimed Arriva's customer services director Bethan Jelfs.

Arriva will be replaced by KeolisAmey as line operator in October.
