Salisbury train crash news – Newborn baby pulled from wreckage as 17 hospitalised in rail smash inside Fisherton Tunnel

Network Rail director ‘does not know exactly’ what happened

Martin Frobisher, group safety and engineering director, technical authority, at Network Rail, said he does not know exactly what happened in the Salisbury train collision on Sunday evening.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme: “We’re hugely relieved that nobody was seriously injured, but the passengers must have had a really scary experience, and we’re very sorry for that.

“We’re obviously starting now a very detailed and forensic investigation into what happened.

“The Rail Accident Investigation Branch are on site and they’re incredibly thorough in the work that they do.

“And that’ll help us learn from this, and that’s why these events are very rare, because we follow it up very, very carefully, and make sure that we do everything possible to prevent it for the future.”

Mr Frobisher said it is “far too early to speculate”, adding that there is “a lot of contradictory information” in the early stages of an investigation.
