No fatalaties according to reports.

Nobody hurt which is good news.

Emergency services are being hampered however, by queues of Liverpudlians laying wreaths and smiling for the cameras.

We love you Boris!

Thats nothing new, they were laying wreath for a chicken foetus last week, as they thought it was a child!!!

Apparently they're arranging a Charity gig starring Sonia (well, Sonia is):}

Any looting going on? There's a bunch of New Orleanites ready to assist:E

Seriously though, it must be a very quiet news day... all the News Channels are still journo-bating like crazy about it :rolleyes: Bit of a non-story, really..

Louise Ellman, Liverpool Riverside MP, said: "I am very concerned, it appears there have not been serious injuries," she said.

Louise Ellman - MP or budding journalist looking for a scoop?

Has Gerry Marsden re-re-re-released "Ferry Cross The Mersey" yet? :rolleyes:

Old joke warning -

Apparently, the crash left the station with some 30,000-worth of improvements.

...and everyone laughed at me when I pointed out in a post about what a difficult job traindrivers have, how hard it must be to steer them properly and keep them on those thin rails.

I bet you're not laughing now :*

Rumour has it , it was Everton fans who derailed it so they could get a look at some points.

Rail chat (http://www.railchat.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=1772) are reporting the rear bogie derails at low speed. Somewhat the railway equivalent of somebody dropping the wheels off the concrete while leaving the runway to taxi after landing, and imagine the scorn that would generate on this site if subject to hysterical media reporting.

Also comments along the lines of 'wait for the investigation'. Now where do we also hear that?!:hmm:

Well all the usual suspects were at the match!!! :p :p

Watch out clumsy, or I'll ridicule you again. I'll have you know my great-uncle was a navigator for the Santa Fe RR and never failed to keep them on track.
