From the BBC (looks like it could be nasty...):

Passengers are reported to be injured and trapped after a train derailed and slid down an embankment in Cumbria.

Nine carriages were left on their side, with some "stuck up in the air", passengers said. Fire crews said it was thought there were "numerous injuries".

The Virgin train, the 1715 from London Euston to Glasgow Central, crashed at Grayrigg near Kendal at 2015 GMT. It had been due in Glasgow at 2154 GMT.

Passenger Caroline Thomson said the train seemed to hit something.

The BBC executive said there were "lots and lots" of walking wounded at the scene.

RAF helicopters, police and fire crews have been sent to the scene of collision, between Oxenholme and Tebay in the Lake District.

Cumbria Ambulance Service said six to eight people were feared trapped in one of the carriages of the train. The train had about 180 people on board, the fire service said.
