The derailment of a passenger train in eastern Scotland has left at least one person dead and others seriously injured, reports say.
Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon said the derailment near Stonehaven on Wednesday morning was "extremely serious" and there were a number of serious injuries.
At least one person had died, Sky News reported.
Video footage on social media showed smoke rising from the scene.
"This is an extremely serious incident," Sturgeon told the Scottish parliament.
"Although details are still emerging I am afraid to say there are early reports of serious injuries," she said.
"All my thoughts are with those involved."
A photograph on Twitter showed an air ambulance in a field near the scene where smoke was billowing from a woodland area, alongside about 25 police vehicles and ambulances.
Local reports said there had been flooding in the area overnight.
