Scores injured as Brooklyn train derails

More than 100 people have been injured following a train derailment at a major transport hub in Brooklyn, New York.

The Long Island Rail Road train rammed into a bumper as it came into the Atlantic Terminal around 8am on Wednesday (local time).

It knocked at least the front two cars off the tracks, the New York Times reports.

The Fire Service says the crash could have been a lot worse considering one rail - the track the train was on - sliced through a car floor.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo says he was "glad to report" there had been no deaths, with the most serious injury a broken leg.

Commuters were warned of delays in and out of the terminal, causing disruption for the thousands which use the station each day.
