NO trains are running on the Cambrian line.

A spokesperson for Arriva Trains and Network Rails said: "Following further deterioration of weather conditions overnight, and despite considerable effort by railway teams, both Arriva Trains Wales and Network Rail have had to take the difficult decision to cancel all services in the Southern part of the network and along the Cambrian line from Shrewsbury to Aberystwyth.

"As a result, customers are advised not to attempt to travel on Arriva Trains Wales services for the whole of the South of the network.

"Currently, the only services which will be operating on a limited basis will be; Shrewsbury - Crewe; Crewe - Chester; Chester - Holyhead; Wrexham- Bidston.

"Customers are advised to visit for updated information, but should only attempt to travel on routes which are operating if absolutely necessary.

"We would like to apologise for these further cancellations, however, the safety of our customers and colleagues remains our absolute priority and we will continue to work tirelessly to resume services as soon as is safe to do so.

The Cambrian line is currently closed but we're hoping to reinsate some services later today. We're working closely with our partners in Network Rail to assess the impact of the weather on the infrastructure, particularly between Aberystwyth and Machynlleth before we know whether we'll be able to safely run trains along the route to Shrewsbury."

"We will try to send out a more detailed update later."
