At least 10 people were killed when a high-speed passenger train slammed into youths crossing railway tracks at a station in northeastern Spain, Spanish national radio said.

It said 15 were also injured in the accident at the Castelldefels Playa station near Barcelona at around 11:30pm (local time) on Wednesday.

The youths were celebrating the Saint John's Day festival, which takes place annually on June 23 in the northeastern region of Catalonia and includes bonfires, fireworks, concerts and dances, the Europa Press news agency said.
