King's Cross derailment

On 16 September 2003 a GNER express was derailed at just after 07:00hrs immediately after leaving Platform 4 at King's Cross station in London.

The length of rail had been removed during maintenance work, as is permissible, but it should not have been possible for a train to be routed onto the section of track where the rail had been removed.
