Swiss train crash - level 3
Dozens of people have reportedly been injured in a train collision in Switzerland. The collision happened this morning at the train station in the Swiss town of Rafz, around 19 miles north of Zurich.
The crash was between a commuter train and a high-speed train on its way from Zurich to Stuttgart. Footage from the scene shows that some carriages were knocked off the tracks but not overturned.
Ambulances, fire and rescue services rushed to the scene. Meanwhile, service on the line between the towns of Bulach and Schaffhausen has been suspended.
The Swiss rail service is generally admired for its safety and efficiency. The Swiss are the biggest users of trains in Europe.
