A 62-year-old man has been identified as the third victim of a train crash near Stonehaven.

Christopher Stuchbury, from Aberdeen, was a passenger on the early morning service to Glasgow.

Train driver Brett McCullough and conductor Donald Dinnie have been confirmed as the two other victims of the incident.

A total of six people have been treated in hospital for minor injuries after the train derailed at around 10am yesterday.

It is thought the train hit a landslide following heavy rain and thunderstorms, which caused widespread disruption across Scotland on Tuesday night.

Investigators from the British Transport Police, Rail Accident Investigation Branch and Office of Rail and Road are working to identify the exact cause of the derailment.
