The crash

In the final moments before the train smashed into Potters Bar station the derailed fourth carriage turned to run across the tracks at right angles.

Its momentum carried it up the platforms on both sides of the track.

Approximately 30 people were inside the carriage as it smashed into and completely demolished a waiting room.

It finally halted under a station canopy.

The front three carriages continued 150-200 yards down the track before stopping.
