A main commuter route into Cardiff has been reopened after overrunning engineering works closed a railway line on Monday morning.

No services ran between Radyr and Cardiff Queen Street before 10:00 GMT.

A replacement bus service was put in place between the two destinations, stopping at Cathays and Llandaff.

Rail passengers were told to use Cardiff Bus services to limit disruption.

There are also replacement bus services running on two other Arriva Trains Wales services due to Sunday's rain and flooding problems - trains between Bridgend and Rhoose Cardiff Airport are not running and passengers travelling between Porth and Treherbert will also be taken by bus after a landslip.
