Rail union RMT on Vauxhall Fire

5 May 2016

RMT Press Office:

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said; "RMT members will be working flat out to try and restore services in and out of Vauxhall as the investigations into the cause of this fire get underway. RMT will be taking a close interest in those investigations and the hard facts that they throw up.

"This morning's fire is another reminder of just how crucial a vigilant and ‎pro-active safety culture is on Britain's over-stretched railways.

"The union is aware that there are emergency evacuations  of  ‎stations back down the lines from Vauxhall due to dangerous overcrowding. RMT station staff and train crew will be leading those emergency safety procedures demonstrating again the safety-critical role of the entire railway team."
