One person has died and dozens have been injured after a passenger train derailed in the southern Netherlands, the Dutch emergency services said.
The incident happened close to the village of Voorschoten, near The Hague, at around 3.25am local time (2.25am Irish time).
It was reportedly caused by left over construction equipment on the tracks.
A fire department spokesman told Dutch radio that 19 people were taken to hospital, while others were being treated at the scene.
The front carriage of the train between Leiden City and The Hague came off the tracks and ended up in a field after the accident, according to the ANP news agency.
A fire also broke out in the rear carriage, but was eventually put out.
Dutch Railways (NS) spokesman Erik Kroeze confirmed a freight train was involved in the incident, but could not give details.
Services between Leiden and The Hague have since been cancelled while the rescue operation continues.
There had been earlier reports suggesting the passenger train had collided with a freight train - but this later turned out not to be the case.
