Survivors and families who lost loved ones in the 2002 Potters Bar rail crash marked its 10th anniversary today at a solemn ceremony close to the scene of the disaster.
They held a minute's silence at a nearby memorial garden on the stroke of 12.56pm - the precise time the London to King's Lynn train derailed after jumping poorly maintained points.
Today's ceremony was one of two services in the area commemorating the crash which killed seven.
The other took place at nearby Our Lady and St Vincent church.
Writer Nina Bawden, who was badly injured and lost her husband Austen Kark in the disaster, said she still thought about him "all the time."
Rail union RMT described anniversary of the crash as a "wake-up call" to Con-Dem ministers planning cost-cutting plans on the railways proposed in the McNulty report.
RMT leader Bob Crow said: "We have witnessed the lethal truth at Potters Bar that when profit is the motive, repairs and maintenance work gets ignored and delayed because companies want to maximise returns for shareholders."
Fire Minister Brandon Lewis probably had a fair idea what Sir Ken Knight would deliver when he asked him to conduct an "independent" report into fire and rescue services in England.
