At least one person has died and several others are missing after a freight train carrying crude oil exploded into a giant fireball in a Quebec town, Canada.

The driverless train derailed and crashed into the streets of Lac-Megantic sending flames hundreds of feet into the air, engulfing cars and destroying up to 30 buildings.

Huge clouds of thick black smoke were still rising from the town several hours after the disaster and police fear that the death toll will rise. Report by Sarah Kerr.
