Unions to demonstrate on anniversary of King’s Cross fire

Rail workers’ union RMT is planning to demonstrate outside King’s Cross this weekend on the 25th anniversary of the fire that killed 31 people at the London station.

Members have said the aim of the protest is to “highlight the continued need for a fully staffed and safe Tube network”.

RMT members, fellow trade unionists and community supporters will assemble at the front of King’s Cross station on November 18, for 11am.

RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: “This Sunday we will mark the 25th anniversary of one of the greatest peace-time disasters to hit London when, due to a culture of complacency and systemic failure, 31 people lost their lives in the fire at King’s Cross underground station.

“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.”
