Three dead and ten seriously hurt as train derails near Milan

Emergency services are at the scene with members of the local fire brigade in the process of rescuing travellers trapped inside the carriages. Photographs show three carriages sprawled across the tracks, one of them tilted to the side, smashed into a pole.

At least five passengers were reported to have suffered serious injuries, while dozens of others had minor injuries.

The incident happened between Pioltello and Segrate, 40km from Milan.

The cause of the accident was not immediately clear. Some of the injured received first aid treatment in a nearby field.

Journalists watched from a field about 100 metres away from the site, where three helicopters arrived to rush the injured to hospital while another patrolled the area. According to the reports, fire fighters were seen gathering in the coach trying to evacuate the injured passengers.
