EPISODE 17: TRAGEDY ERUPTS FROM THE ASHES OF OTHER PEOPLES MISTAKES

A sequel to our most popular episode- Trains, Pain and Underground Squeals. This time on Macabre London, we uncover one of the worst fires to have ever happened in the history of the tube. The Kings Cross Fire happened in 1987 but it’s legacy lives on even today. We discuss how the fire happened, how it got so out of control and the strange fire phenomenon that scientists discovered as a result. How does the fire link with modern day improvements and how can today’s government learn from the past and maybe put safety precautions into practice before lives are lost again, as was seen in 2017 with the Grenfell disaster.
