In the early evening of 20 February, two trains struck location cabinet doors that had been left unsecured and were drawn towards the track by the aerodynamic effects of passing trains. The trains suffered some external damage but no one was injured.

We have undertaken a preliminary examination into the circumstances surrounding this accident. Having assessed the evidence which has been gathered to date, we have decided to publish a safety digest.

The safety digest will shortly be made available on our website.
