Family and friends of tram victims visit scene of crash

Family and friends of the seven victims of the Croydon tram crash have visited the scene to lay flowers, as work continued to remove the wreckage.

Some want to know why the names of those who died still haven't been confirmed, but Croydon MP Gavin Barwell said the authorities are still working on formally identifying some of the victims.

Police investigating the incident have said they are also looking into reports that another tram nearly derailed at the same spot last week and appealed for witnesses.

Croydon Council has created an online fundraising page to help people affected by the derailment.

It states: "Many of those involved will require long-term emotional and financial support in the difficult months ahead.

"This is the official fund to raise money to enable those directly affected by this tragedy, their families, and where appropriate, the wider community, to have access to ongoing care and support. "
