Three people died after a passenger train derailed in Aberdeenshire, Northeast Scotland, after heavy rain and a landslip in the area.

British Transport said that despite the best efforts of paramedics, three people have been pronounced dead at the scene. The statement added that the train’s driver was among those who had died at the scene, however he was not identified.
