Dozens injured in a train collision in Meerbusch, Germany

At least five people have been injured after two trains collided in Germany.

Authorities said there had been multiple injuries but didn't immediately have more specific information.

The incident took place near the Meerbusch-Osterath train station in North-Rhine Westphalia, the most populous state in Germany.

Meerbusch firefighters have been rescuing passengers from the damaged train since 9:30 p.m. local time (2030 UTC). National Express's first estimate of the number of injured was 20.

For the record, Starc bagged Stuart Broad caught-behind and Bairstow was last out chopping on to his former Yorkshire team-mate. That left England lurching towards defeat on 188 for seven after 45 minutes of play on the final day.

The fire department shared an image of the scene with an update on the situation.

The initial estimates of injury were lower; Deutsche Bahn rail company, which operated the passenger train, first estimated only five people had been hurt, then raised the estimate to almost 50.

"Our emergency services arrived at the accident site", the Meerbusch Fire Department said via Twitter.

In another tweet, it said access to the train had been hampered by ruptured contact wires but that this was being resolved.
