Introduction

On Tuesday 17 October 2000 the 1210 GNER Intercity 225 train from London to Leeds was derailed outside the Hertfordshire town of Hatfield, killing four people. It is the third serious rail disaster in three years after the Southall and Paddington crashes.

The train, which was carrying about 200 passengers, came to a catastrophic halt at 12.25pm. Four of the nine carriages were derailed and three more were flung over on their side a few hundred metres south of Hatfield station.
