A train has derailed shortly after leaving the Belgian city of Leuven, killing at least one person and injuring dozens more.

Rescue workers said the person was crushed to death when one of the carriages toppled over at one twenty in the afternoon.

Belgium’s prime minister Charles Michel visited the crash site which is about 16 miles east of Brussels.

Services between Brussels and Leuven were suspended, including some headed to the airport.
