A train has derailed south of the US city of Philadelphia, with some reports saying two people have been killed and a number of others injured.

Amtrak’s Train 89 was heading from New York City to Savannah in Georgia when it struck a mechanical digger – known in the US as a backhoe – that was on the track at Chester.

Some 341 passengers and seven crew members were on board.

All Amtrak services between New York and Philadelphia have been suspended.
