At least 30 people injured during train crash at Andermatt railway station in the Alps

At least 30 people have been injured during a train crash in Andermatt Station, in the Swiss Alps, a location popular with tourists.

The crash happened when a locomotive moved back up against the convoy it had just detached itself from, instead of moving via a parallel line.

The locomotive was moving at a very slow speed, so none of the injuries are thought to be serious. There were about 100 passengers on board the convoy.

Local authorities have opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.
