China's Premier Wen Jiabao is visiting the site of last weekend's train crash in Wenzhou, in which 39 people were killed when a train stopped on a viaduct and was hit by another high speed train.

Martin Patience reports from the scene, where "six carriages fell from the bridge".

And Isabel Hilton, editor of chinadialogue.net, examines why the "prestige project" that was supposed to symbolise China's advancement has ended so tragically.
