HSE prosecution decision on Potters Bar train derailment

HSE InfoLine : 17 October, 2005  (Company News)
Allan Sefton, Director of Rail Safety at the Health and Safety Executive, said today that a decision on whether to prosecute for health and safety offences in relation to the Potters Bar train derailment will be taken after a Coroner's Inquest is held.
Allan Sefton, Director of Rail Safety at the Health and Safety Executive, said today that a decision on whether to prosecute for health and safety offences in relation to the Potters Bar train derailment will be taken after a Coroner's Inquest is held.

The message followed the Crown Prosecution Service's announcement today that, after consideration of the evidence, it has advised British Transport Police that there is no realistic prospect of conviction for an offence of gross negligence manslaughter against any individual or corporation.

Dr Sefton said: 'HSE and BTP have kept the bereaved families and those injured in the derailment fully informed on the progress of the case. After the conclusion of a Coroner's Inquest we will inform them of our decision on whether any prosecution under the Health and Safety at Work Act is appropriate before making that decision public.'
