Multiple deaths and injuries reported Sunday after a passenger train derailed in the northwestern Turkish province of Tekirdağ.

Ten people were killed and 73 injured in a train crash in northwest Turkey today.

The Ministry of Transport said five of the train's six cars derailed in a village in Tekirdag province after "the ground between the culvert and the rail collapsed" due to heavy rain. "It was a awful accident", she said.

Tekirdag governor Mehmet Ceyhan said the area where the derailment happened was muddy from heavy rain and hard to reach.

Television pictures showed several train carriages laying on their sides, and shocked injured being taken away on stretchers.

On a more serious note, the London Ambulance Service revealed that a vehicle was damaged by celebrating fans while a paramedic was on call.

"There are a large number of injured and we have fatalities", Tekirdag governor Mehmet Ceylan told the NTV channel.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been informed over the accident and expressed his condolences over those who lost their lives, state-run Anadolu news agency said.

About 100 ambulances were at the scene, along with helicopters from the Turkish army.

Later, the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications said in a statement the accident occurred after the railway track slipped down from its original spot due to torrential rains.
