Three people dead sad.gif Just a 20 minute drive from my home, it's crazy. Thankfully no one else in hospital from this has serious injuries but still what a tragedy sad.gif

It's such a dark time for Aberdeen and the North-East right now. There's the local lockdown, which has caused several well loved local businesses to close permanently as they just couldn't cope anymore and all the job losses from that, the downturn in oil price which again threatens so many jobs here, we didn't properly recover from the last crash and now this.

Itís awful. So so tragic that three people have had their lives cut short. Serious questions need to be asked, in time, about why the train was even running in the first place given the storms last night.


By the looks of the images, mainly one of the carriages that has been extremely badly damaged, if that had been a normal August train the death toll would have been just utterly catastrophic. Not that three lives isnít a catastrophe of course.
