At least 40 people have been injured, four of them seriously, in a collision between two trains in western Switzerland.

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

Reports say the regional trains collided head-on in the early evening.

Public TV station SRF quoted Vaud canton police spokesman Pierre-Olivier Gaudard as saying that one person had yet to be recovered from the wreckage.

Earlier this month, 79 people were killed in a high-speed derailment in north-western Spain.
