Safety 'still an issue' at Kings Cross

''Due to a culture of complacency and systemic failure, 31 people lost their lives at King's Cross''

''We are marking the event with a public demonstration to send out the message that never again must the London Underground be dragged back to the same catalogue of complacency and failures which led us to King's Cross''

– RMT general secretary Bob Crow

Bob Crowe is calling on mayor Boris Johnson "to end once and for all the threatened cuts to station and platform staffing levels, the cuts to maintenance schedules and the persistent threat to bring in driverless trains".

More than 100 people were taken to hospital after the King's Cross fire
