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.
