  • Gatwick Express Derails

    An investigation has been launched after a Gatwick Express train travelling at 80mph derailed as it headed into London.

    One woman passenger aggravated a previous whiplash injury but none of the other 21 people on board was hurt.

    The accident on the Gatwick Express line in Surrey caused serious delays to morning rush-hour services.

    Two lines were shut leading to severe disruption to trains on the London to Brighton route and other south coast routes.

    The accident happened just outside Redhill station when the rear locomotive of train came off the tracks but stayed upright.

    Passengers were eventually taken back to Gatwick by a relief train.
