  1. Blimey, that must have been aweful.

    It must be really hard for the drivers when their is little they can do never mind the people that have to mop up the mess.

    One of Chelle's first shouts was a guy who stepped in front of a coal train near Mansfield. He was trapped under a wheelset, still alive. they had to call for cranes to lift the loco up, move the wheels off him and get him out. He died when the wheel was removed, some four hours after he stepped out.

    Often the drivers don't go back to work om the trains.
     
  3. I don't think I would want to. I cannot imagine the trauma they go through and the nightmares afterwards

    Not sure if things have changed but me was in firebrigade, seems odd thing for them to go to unless it was for the cutting equipment they have.

  7. It is hard on the drivers. There's nothing they can do about it. I feel bad for hitting a pheasant whilst driving the car.
    It's also difficult for the relatives. I the one that dived off the platform, his Dad was in denial and suggested that it was too windy or cold on the platform and that the waiting room should have been open. The fact that he bought a one way ticket from Leeds and all the witnesses said he took a running dive didn't stop my mate having to get the weather conditions for that day for the coroner. The Dad was totally messed up as it was his second son to commit suicide. Poor sod.

    80 Years of the Spitfire, More4, 8pm
    Saturday marks the 80th anniversary, to the day, of the iconic fighter plane’s first ever flight. More4 marks the occasion with a documentary double bill, beginning with Guy Martin’s two-year mission to rebuild a Spitfire shot down in 1940. Then, Dermot O’Leary explores the human stories behind the Battle of Britain, when the plane was forever cemented in the national psyche, by meeting the handful of heroes still with us who lived through that famous day.
