Croydon tram crash: Driver denies breaking health and safety laws

The crash resulted in the deaths of Dane Chinnery, 19, Philip Logan, 52, Philip Seary, 57, Dorota Rynkiewicz, 35, and Robert Huxley, 63, all from New Addington, and Mark Smith, 35, and Donald Collett, 62, who were both from Croydon.

Nineteen of the 61 people hurt in the derailment suffered serious injuries.

Transport for London (TfL) and the operator, Tram Operations Limited (TOL), indicated guilty pleas over health and safety failings at an earlier hearing.

A manslaughter or corporate manslaughter case was ruled out by the Crown Prosecution Service in 2019. This prosecution was brought by the Office for Rail and Road (ORR), a government body.
