Now saying a number of serious injuries.

Seems to have been a 4 carriage train, derailed after coming in contact with a landslip on the line.

Looks bad

Awful news and hopefully there are minimal injuries. Sounds like it may have gone down the side of an embankment :(

The excited coverage on Sky News is appalling. They're working very hard to demonise themselves this week, with their disgraceful coverage of the refugees and now this.

Show some respect and some decency rather than chasing a story because everyone is bored of their wall to wall Corona scaremongering.

1 dead according to a couple of news outlets, at least 1 reporting it being the driver.

I've also heard it stopped due to coming across a landslip so it was turned back to head back towards Aberdeen where it hit a 2nd one, I've not seen that confirmed anywhere but from some of my colleagues who have no reason to BS.

My thoughts are with everyone involved.

Used to do that line several times a month for several years, when I lived in Edinburgh and our company had offices in Glasgow and Aberdeen. Very sad.

Some photos doing the rounds already, I won't post them out of respect of the situation but it looks a state. 6 car HST from what I gather.

What are you on about.

The first major UK rail incident for over 10 years, you would expect them to cover the incident.

They have been clear that the report of one death is unconfirmed.

The pictures are not pleasant viewing, as they give a clear indication of the horrors involved.

Indeed. I fear not just for the people on board (very few thankfully, by all accounts) and everyone aiding in the recovery. I come from a railway family and i've heard many a story about things, so i don't envy any of them.
