Fatal accident at London Underground Bakerloo Line platform, Waterloo, 26 May 2020.

At about 10:11 hrs on Tuesday 26 May 2020, a person fell between the platform edge and the stationary northbound Bakerloo line train from which they had alighted at London Waterloo underground station. They suffered fatal injuries as the train subsequently started moving and departed from the platform.

Our investigation will aim to identify the sequence of events and consider factors relating to the supervision of the platform-train interface and any relevant underlying factors.

Our investigation is independent of any investigation by the railway industry, the British Transport Police or by the industry’s regulator, the Office of Rail and Road.

We will publish our findings, including any recommendations to improve safety, at the conclusion of our investigation. This report will be available on our website.
