Angela Mattingly, who was on the train, told the BBC: “Everything went black and there were red flashes and everything.”

Another passenger, Lucy, said the incident was “really scary”.

“We were just pulling into Salisbury station and the train felt a bit juddery,” she said.

“I’d just stood up and put my coat on and my phone in my pocket when there was this massive impact and I fell across the table.”

Dimitri Popa was travelling on the train from London to Sherborne when the terrifying crash occurred.

The 17-year-old said: “It all happened so fast… I was just sitting in the first carriage and there was a huge crash.

“Then I saw the flames and got pretty scared, and all the lights went out.

“The carriage was 45 degrees to the right.

“We didn’t know where we were or anything… we were all just so shocked.”

 

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “Officers are continuing to respond to the incident at Fisherton Tunnel.
