Two people have been injured after a “significant” fire on a freight train carrying diesel in south Wales.
Emergency crews were called to Llangennech, near Llanelli, and nearby homes were evacuated after the fire was reported at around 11.20pm on Wednesday.
British Transport Police said the two injured people were employees and a number of carriages derailed and caught fire while Mid and West Wales Fire Service said three cars were alight.
Officers declared a major incident and knocked on houses in the 800-metre exclusion zone asking people to move to the nearby Bryn School and Llangennech community centre.
