Three people killed after train derails near Stonehaven

Three people have died and six others have been taken to hospital after a train derailed in Aberdeenshire.

Aerial shots appear to show one carriage completely overturned after the service from Aberdeen to Glasgow Queen Street came off the tracks near Stonehaven earlier.

ScotRail has confirmed the three who died were the driver, the conductor and a passenger.

The operator added in a Twitter statement: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and colleagues of those who have lost loved ones."

Rail industry sources told PA news agency that the suspected cause of the incident was a landslip.

Six people have been taken to hospital with injuries which are not believed to be serious.

The Queen has sent a message of condolence and said "it was with great sadness that I heard of the train derailment earlier today in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire".
