Health & Safety Executive investigators

Health & Safety Executive investigators are trying to establish how a 90t mobile crane toppled over and smashed its jib into a nearby house while working at London Underground's Boston Manor Station on the Piccadilly Line last weekend. Tilbury Douglas was using the Baldwins crane for platform refurbishment when the accident happened at 3am on Sunday morning. Trains to Heathrow Airport were suspended until Monday morning. Two families were evacuated but no-one was hurt.
