The Apollo Theatre collapse demonstrates how dependent the safety of Londoners is on the stations that Boris Johnson intends to close. If the cuts go ahead, the mayor will end up with blood on his hands. These cuts are reckless, wrong and will jeopardise the safety of millions of Londoners: it will only be a matter of time before someone dies as a result of a fire engine failing to reach them in time. Although campaigners lost the legal case, we won the moral argument and, even at this late stage, we would urge the mayor to reconsider.
