Rail Accident Investigation Branch Probing London Underground Passenger Death in December

The United Kingdom’s Rail Accident Investigation Branch is probing the Dec. 26, 2023, death of a passenger at Stratford station on London Underground’s Jubilee line.

Around 2:45 p.m. on Dec. 26, 2023, the passenger fell from a platform onto the tracks. The passenger remained on the track and was struck, possibly by some trains, before being discovered by London Underground station staff.

The accident resulted in fatal injuries being sustained by the passenger. 

The investigation will seek to identify the events that led to the accident and will consider:

  • the actions of those involved and anything which may have influenced them
  • the management of the staff involved in the accident, including their training and competence
  • the arrangements in place to manage and control the risks of such accidents
  • any underlying management factors.

After the investigation, the agency will publish our findings, including any recommendations to improve safety.
