Initial reports indicate the TGV train was stopped on the tracks and restarting when the crash occurred near the town of Denguin.

Police and firefighters arrived at the scene quickly to help the injured passengers from the train.

The collision follows a recent damning report into the rail crash south of Paris last year, in which seven people died.

That report highlighted the poor state of France’s rail network, with the blame placed on poor maintenance checks.
