Helicopter footage of train fire


A freight train hauling tankers of petrol has derailed and caught fire in Ayrshire, Scotland.

It is understood the train hit a pylon while crossing a bridge, which has now collapsed. Power lines have come down and the nearby A735 has been closed.

At least six wagons came off the rails but no-one is reported to have been injured.
