BREAKING - Croydon tram disaster: TfL fined £10m over health and safety failings

Transport for London (TfL) has been fined £10m for health and safety failings that led up to the Croydon tram disaster.

Seven people were killed and 21 others badly hurt in the November 2016 crash.

Tram Operations Limited (TOL) has also been fined £4m.

Transport for London and Tram Operations Limited both accepted failings in their health and safety duties.

The tram was travelling at three times the speed limit and topped over a sharp bend.

In June, the tram's driver Alfred Dorris was cleared of failing to take reasonable care at work.

The 49-year-old had blamed the crash on external factors including poor lighting and signage.
