Around 50 people have been evacuated from a London Overground service which has crashed in North London. At least two people are being treated for injuries, but they have not taken to hospital.
The driver of the train is being treated for shock. Station staff were helping passengers off the train before the London Fire Brigade arrived.
Around 8:20am on the 12/10/2021, the train failed to stop at the end of the line and hit the buffers at the station, proceeding to go over the buffers narrowly missing hitting a building.
Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia said:
“At approximately 8.20am a train hit the buffer stops at Enfield Town at slow speed."
“The driver is being treated for shock and there are reports of a few minor injuries."
“Emergency services including the British Transport Police are on site and an investigation is under way.”
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has told ITV:
“Thankfully there aren’t the kind of casualties that we could’ve had. Just the one driver taken to hospital with shock. There will be a full inquiry to get to the bottom of this.”
