    From what I've picked up from the control log it sounds like a HST (two power cars and four centre cars) has hit a landslip and gone down the embankment. Very rural location with poor road access. over 30 emergency vehicles now on site and reports of some serious injuries. Air ambulances being used.
    Weather overnight had been atrocious with flash flooding in the nearby town of Stonehaven

    Fingers crossed for all those involved

    It is so gratifying to see how the UK media reports tragedies such as this. There is no speculating, finger pointing, unsupported opinions, or politicization. Merely true journalistic reporting of facts known to the moment of deadline. How refreshing.
