A PASSENGER train has derailed on the Sevilla-Malaga line with at least 30 people injured, two seriously.

The full extent of the accident remains unconfirmed, but a police official confirmed that the third carriage came off the rails near a section cut off by heavy rain between the villages of Arahal and El Sorbito in Sevilla Province.

A helicopter was used to evacuate injured passengers as the site is not accessible by road.
