At least 78 people have been killed in the passenger train derailment in north-western Spain on Wednesday.

More than 140 were hurt, 20 seriously, after all eight carriages of the Madrid to Ferrol train came off the tracks near Santiago de Compostela.

Inma Gil from the BBC's Mundo Service said the accident happened during an annual festival in the town.

"People who were in the streets getting ready to party, started hearing about this tragic news... the mood just changed completely," she added.
