The Walrus BS: Tube Derailment in London - are you ok? (10) RE: BS: Tube Derailment in London - are you ok? 05 Jul 07

Lunchtime news reported that the only 'major' injury was a sprained ankle.

The same programme reported the tale that the cause of the crash was a roll of tarpaulin being used in maintainance falling across the track. It would appear that the tarpaulin which had been secured* in a side passage-way, had been shaken loose by a combination of vibration and the wind caused by the passage of earlier trains.
The above is, as yet, unsubstantiated and a report released after the investigation.


* One would presume improperly.
