Aye, first thing I heard on the radio whilst driving to work this morning.

Apparently, It's going to make things more difficult for commuters travelling into Copenhagen to work as that part of Sweden is considered part of the wider metropolitan area.

The BBC have undertaken a break-down of the the ownership and structure of the railways in the area.
It turns out the trains involved, are owned by Transdev.

It seems figures for the deceased and injured is still the same as when you posted.
