Services to mark Potters Bar crash

Have your say

The 10th anniversary of the Potters Bar rail crash will be marked today by memorial services.

The first will take place at a memorial garden close to the site of the Hertfordshire crash which claimed seven lives.

This first service will include the laying of flowers and a minute’s silence at 12.56pm: the time the London to King’s Lynn train derailed at a faulty set of points.

After that there will be a memorial service in Potters Bar. Six passengers were killed in the crash. The seventh victim was killed by falling debris as she walked close to the station.
