February 28, 1975: Forty-two Tube passengers were killed after their train failed to stop at Moorgate station in the worst ever crash on the London Underground. Driver Leslie Newson also died after ploughing – without any apparent reason - into a wall at the terminus of the Highbury branch of the Northern Line at 8.46am. The force of the 30mph crash was so immense that it caused three carriages to completely crumble up and sever passengers’ limbs with twisted shards of steel.
