A high-speed train has reportedly derailed in Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain, leaving at least 35 people dead and 50 injured. Media reports suggest the death toll may rise.

The train, which reportedly had 240 people on board, was en route between Madrid and Ferrol. According to media reports, 13 cars derailed – at least four of which caught fire.

Renfe, the company which operates the train, has not given any details on the number of people injured or killed. However, it did confirm that the accident is one of the most serious derailments ever to happen in Spain.

There are reports of bodies scattered around the scene covered in blankets, as emergency services perform their work.

"Neighbors in the area tell Spanish and European media they heard ’an explosion’ at the time of derailment", said Actualidad.

Unofficial statements claim that the train was exceeding the speed limit.
