Collision at Waterloo, 15th Aug 2017 - RAIB interim report

Interim report published - see https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/669469/IR022017_171220_Waterloo.pdf

Extract from the Summary:
The collision occurred because a set of points was not in the correct position and
directed the passenger train away from its intended route. When the train passed
over them, the points were in this position because of a temporary modification
to the points control system, which also caused the train driver and signaller to
receive indications that the points were correctly set.
