(BBC) — At least 35 people have been injured, five of them seriously, in a collision between two trains in western Switzerland.

The crash happened in Granges-pres-Marnand in Vaud canton, about 50km (30 miles) south-west of the capital, Bern.

The regional trains collided head-on in the early evening.

The driver of one of the trains was still unaccounted for and thought to be inside the wreckage, police spokesman Jean-Christophe Sauterel said.
