Rescue

Firefighters attended a derailed train at Paddington Station this evening. Thankfully only the driver was on board at the time of the incident and they left the train before the Brigade arrived.

When crews arrived, they checked there was nobody trapped or left on board and once certain the scene was safe handed the incident back over to Network Rail.

The incident caused travel delays for the evening's rush hour.

Four fire engines and a fire and rescue unit attended from stations including Paddington, Kensington and Euston fire stations.

The Brigade were called at 1822 and handed the incident over to Network Rail at 1906.
