Two people have been injured at Enfield Town Station today when the Overground service crashed through the buffers.
“Thankfully, there are not the sort of casualties we could have had – just the one driver taken for shock to hospital,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said.
The mayor added that a full inquiry will be held to discover what went wrong.
One driver was treated on the scene for shock. While Network Rail, as well as the London Fire Brigade, has described the injuries as “minor”.
Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, Ellie Burrows, said: “At approximately 8.20am a train hit the buffer stops at Enfield Town at slow speed.
“The driver is being treated for shock and there are reports of a few minor injuries.
“Emergency services including the British Transport Police are on site and an investigation is under way.”
TfL’s General Manager for London Overground Rory O’Neill said: “A London Overground train had a low speed collision with a buffer at around 8:20 this morning at Enfield Town station. Emergency services attended this morning and there will be a full investigation to establish how this happened.”
City A.M. has contacted Transport for London for comment.
