A train carrying nuclear waste derailed on Monday night(Dec 23, 2013) not far from the French capital.

The official said the train was travelling slowly and went about 50 centimetres (20 inches) off the rails, and an investigation will be carried out. The official was not authorized to be publicly named according to fire service policy.

An official with the national fire service said experts carried out radiological tests after the incident in Drancy, and found no leaks.

About 4,000 freight wagons carrying radioactive or chemical waste pass through the station each year.
