A train has derailed at a depot in Cardiff, causing disruption to some services in and out of the city.

Arriva Trains Wales said the local line between Cardiff Central and Ninian Park station had been closed.

Trains travelling along the City line through Cardiff Central may be cancelled or delayed by up to 20 minutes and a shuttle service is running from Ninan Park to Radyr.

Services were back to normal by 17:30 BST.

The train operator said the incident involved an empty commuter train as it left its depot at about 07:00 on Monday.

A second shuttle service from Heath Low Level to Coryton is now running, along with a replacement bus service between Radyr and Coryton, and Cardiff Bus is accepting train tickets on certain routes.
