Spain driver facing charge of 'reckless manslaughter'

The driver of the train that derailed in north-west Spain, killing 78 people and injuring more than 130 others, is being held on suspicion of "reckless manslaughter".

Francisco Jose Garzon Amo is thought to have been driving too fast when the train rounded a corner and came off the tracks on Wednesday evening.

On Saturday the carriages and engine were finally removed from the scene of the crash near Santiago de Compostela.
