At least one person was killed and more than 40 others injured when a tourist train derailed in the Swiss Alps, police say.

At least six of the injured were said to be in a serious condition.

Most of the passengers on the Glacier Express were Japanese tourists, police said.

Three carriages came off the tracks and two tipped over in the accident, which occurred on a panoramic route between Zermatt and St Moritz.
