Six people have been killed and 16 injured in a train accident on the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark.
Rail network officials says debris from a freight train – possibly a tarpaulin – hit a commuter train during a heavy storm, forcing it to brake suddenly.
Rescuers are working to free around 100 passengers who remain trapped on board.
Prime Minister tweeted the accident had “shaken them all”. The Ordinary Danes on their way to work or home from
Christmas holidays have had their lives broken.
Images from the scene show heavy goods vehicle trailers on the freight train with their sides torn off.
