Three people were killed in a train derailment in eastern Scotland on Wednesday in what U.K. Transport Minister Grant Shapps called a “very tragic incident.”
Aerial images revealed the scale of the damage, showing overturned carriages near Stonehaven, just south of the city of Aberdeen, after a ScotRail train derailed on Wednesday morning following heavy rain overnight.
PA Media said three people were believed to have died in the accident while a fourth was missing. Police confirmed that three people had been pronounced dead at the scene, one of whom was the driver.
Stonehaven and the surrounding area had been hit by floods in recent days and some reports suggested a landslide may have played a part in the derailment, although that was not confirmed by the authorities.
