BREAKING: A Metro-North passenger train has derailed in New York City – At Least 4 Dead

Will post updates

At least four people have been killed and dozens injured as a passenger train crashed in the Bronx area of New York City.

Several of the Metro-North train’s carriages derailed as the train went into a bend in the railway line.

More than 100 firefighters are at the scene, and reports tell of bloodied passengers being helped from the carriages.

The train was the 05:54 from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) said none of the carriages had gone into the adjacent Hudson or Harlem rivers – although pictures from the scene suggest this nearly happened.
