Several killed in Danish Bridge train accident

Graphic News

January 2, 2019 -- A passenger train on a bridge connecting central Denmark’s islands has hit an "unknown object", killing six people and injuring 16 others, Danish police said.

A tarpaulin from the freight train reportedly hit the passenger train travelling in the opposite direction, prompting it to brake violently.

The rail operator, Danish Railways, earlier told Denmark's TV2 that the victims were passengers on a train going from the city of Odense, on the central Danish island of Funen, to Copenhagen when the accident took place about 8 a.m. local time.

The accident took place on Great Belt Bridge, part of a transport system consisting of a road suspension bridge and a railway tunnel.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
