Kings Cross Fire Anniversary

Kings Cross Fire Anniversary

16 October 2017

RMT Press Office

The 18th November will mark the thirtieth anniversary of the day the fire broke out at King’s Cross Underground station in 1987 resulting in 31 people losing their lives.

‎The subsequent investigation made a series of recommendations about how a repeat of such a tragedy, both in terms of a fire but also involving safe evacuation in other circumstances, could be avoided.

At 11am on Saturday 18 November at the plaque and clock at King’s Cross Station, RMT will be joined by fellow trade unionists and members of the public in marking the terrible events of that day and committing to work tirelessly to defend the safety regime on our transport services. There will be a number of speakers sharing their experiences and pledging to continue to remain ever vigilant against cuts to staffing and weaker safety regulation that place staff and passengers at unacceptable risk.
