7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A tram de­railed in south Lon­don be­fore dawn yes­ter­day, re­sult­ing in “some loss of life” and in­jur­ing more than 50 peo­ple, po­lice and emer­gency ser­vices said. Emer­gency work­ers were still at the scene of the de­rail­ment in Croy­don last night, try­ing to free peo­ple trapped in the wreck­age of the two-car­riage train that tipped on its side next to an underpass. The cause of the de­rail­ment was un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. “A num­ber of peo­ple have been taken to hos­pi­tal with in­juries and sadly it looks as though there has been some loss of life,” As­sis­tant Chief Con­sta­ble Robin Smith told re­porters. Eight fire en­gines and four spe­cial­ist res­cue units were at the scene. Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the Sandi­lands tram stop about 6.10am.
