The Scottish Minister said, ‘This is an extremely serious incident.’
‘I’ve had an initial report from Network Rail and the emergency services and am being kept updates. All my thoughts are with those involved,’ she added.
The reports of the derailment came in after 9.40am. The incident occurred 15km south of Aberdeen. Three have died, which includes one of the train company’s conductors.
