Potters Bar station
The fourth carriage devastated the station

The Journey begins

The train which crashed was a WAGN service travelling from King’s Cross to King’s Lynn.

The Cambridge Cruiser, a class 365 electric train, began its journey without incident at 1245 BST on Friday.

The short trip was only due to take just over an hour and a half, and Potters Bar was not one of its seven scheduled stops.

The train suffered a fatal derailment only a few minutes after leaving London.

The accident, which has claimed seven lives, happened on a stretch of track just miles from the site of the Hatfield disaster.
