Spain train crash: Eyewitnesses recount aftermath

Eyewitnesses have been describing the aftermath of a train crash in Spain, which killed at least 77 people.

All eight carriages of the Madrid to Ferrol train came off the tracks near the city of Santiago de Compostela.

Media reports say the train may have been travelling at more than twice the speed limit around a curve.

One witness described the sound of the crash as "an explosion, as if it was a bomb... the way you watch it on TV."
