Spain train crash: Dozens dead as recovery continues

A train has derailed in north-western Spain, killing at least 77 of its 218 passengers and injuring more than 100, officials in the Galicia region say.

All eight carriages of the Madrid to Ferrol train came off the tracks near the city of Santiago de Compostela.

The BBC's Tom Burridge said media reports suggest that the train was travelling at more than twice the speed limit around a curve.

He added that officials had warned there would not be any more survivors pulled from the wreckage.
