Five people died and more than 50 others were injured when a tram derailed and overturned in south London this morning.
It is difficult to comprehend how this can happen. Surely there should have been sufficient in built systems to stop something like this happening. It is understood that the driver has now been arrested and, no doubt, there will be a lengthy investigation.
Our condolences go out to those who have lost family and friends and to those badly injured just going about their daily lives. Thanks also to the emergency services for their quick response and heroic work.
