A major incident has been declared in Salisbury after two trains collided, injuring several people according to the BBC.

A South Western Railway and a Great Western Railway service collided near London Road.

A trapped train driver was treated by paramedics. 17 people were taken to the hospital in total.

At 18:46 GMT, one train collided with an object in a tunnel, and the second train collided with it due to signaling issues.

Angela Mattingly, who was on the train, said: “Everything went black and there were red flashes and everything.

“There was suddenly a lot of jostling, possessions being thrown around and I think a few people went forward and hit their heads. You just don’t know for a couple of seconds what’s happening.
