The Rail Accident Investigation Branch has confirmed that an investigation has been launched after a fatal accident at London Waterloo underground station.
At around 10:11 on Tuesday, 26th May 2020, a person fell between the platform edge and a stationery northbound Bakerloo line train, which they had alighted from.
They sadly suffered fatal injuries due to the train starting to depart the platform.
The investigation by the RAIB is separate to any BTP investigation or any other organisations investigation.
The RAIB investigation will aim to identify the events leading the fatal accident, and will also consider factors relating to the supervision of the platform-train interface and other underlying factors.
The RAIB will publish the findings in due course.
