Scotland Correspondent

Three people, including the driver, have died after a passenger train derailed in Aberdeenshire during heavy rain and flooding.

Six others were taken to hospital after the crash, which happened early this morning near Stonehaven.

Dozens of emergency service crew, including the air ambulance, were called to the scene when the locomotive and three carriages came off the rails and slid down an embankment.
