A FAILED freight train is causing disruption on all northbound services out of Hereford station this afternoon.

The train broke down north of Leominster, having left Hereford at 1.20pm and Arriva Trains Wales are expecting to get it moving again by 3pm.

Until then rail replacement busses will be available, calling at all stops, or passengers can use their tickets on London Midland, Cross-Country Rail or First Great Western services via Birmingham New Street or Bristol Parkway.
