A rail passenger has lost an arm after falling between a platform and a train as it was pulling out of a station.

The 18:48 BST train from Hereford to Birmingham New Street was delayed for more than an hour at Droitwich while emergency crews attended the scene.

The man was airlifted to hospital. It is not clear if he had been getting off the train at the time.

Rail operator London Midland said there would be a full investigation into what happened.
