With more than 160 people now believed injured and at least 30 of them seriously, court officials have now said that one of the train drivers has been put under formal investigation.

At least 80 are dead and Spain will hold three days of mourning over the train crash, one of the country’s worst.

Security footage is said to have shown the train coming toward the bend at a high speed before flipping on its side.

The black box of the train is now with the judge in charge of the investigation.

There were as many as 168 people taken to the hospital after the crash and there are still 90 being treated health officials say. Thirty are seriously injured and that includes children.

Amongst the injured are many different nationalities including a Briton.

One of the drivers who was slightly injured in the crash was under investigation said a spokeswoman for the Galicia Supreme Court. However she did not refer to which driver it was and whether anyone was under investigation.

The Renfe president, Julio Gomez Pomar is claimed to have said that the train in the crash had no technical problems.
