At least two people have died after a train derailed during rush hour in Spain, reports Express.

The horrific accident took place at a station in O Porrino, in the north-western province of Galicia, at around 9:30am local time.

Pictures on social media showed emergency services at the scene, with officials saying there was a "high number of injuries".

The train was travelling between Vigo and the Portuguese town of Valenca do Minho.
