Croydon Tram Crash

News | Fri 24th Sep, 2021

Following the inquest in the Croydon Tram crash where Andrew Ritchie QC, Giles Mooney QC and James Byrne acted for the 7 families of the deceased, the Coroner has made important Prevention of Future Death findings based on their submissions:

– Automatic breaking systems to prevent over-speeding
– Tram doors
– All tramway operators consider subscribing to CIRAS (or to another similar anonymous reporting scheme)
– Centrally funded national tram safety passenger group

James Byrne comments “We are pleased the Coroner has adopted much of what the families wanted to happen. If properly implemented these recommendations will make our public transport systems safer and will save lives in the future.”
