More than 100 people were injured when a commuter train derailed during rush hour in New York City, officials say.

The Long Island Railroad train went off the tracks as it arrived on Wednesday at Brooklyn's busy Atlantic Terminal.

New York's fire department said 103 people had reportedly suffered "non-life-threatening" injuries.

Passengers on the train said there had been a loud bang followed by a jolt that made some people on the train fall down.
