Tube Crash at Chancery Lane

Fortunately, since I started GoingUnderground.net over four years ago now there has been no major crash on the tubes. We've had hideous loss of life on British Rail at Paddington and Potters Bar, but fortunately nothing on the London Underground. So I was quite shocked to hear today of a crash and derailment at Chancery Lane. Thank goodness there were no fatalities, but over 30 people were injured and the whole thing sounds like a nightmare. People were flung around the carriages, doors came off and glass was flying everywhere. Again in the troubled times we're living in at the moment, it was a relief to hear that it wasn't a terrorist attack and the latest theory seems to be that there was wheel or axle failure. More reports on my site - when I find out more on this.
