Our campaign to see TfL held to account in the Courts for its mismanagement of the Kings Cross junctions has gone up a notch today – The Times reports today an interview with the Met’s head of traffic death investigation:
‘Detective Chief Inspector John Oldham, head of Scotland Yard’s Road Death Investigation Unit, said: “There is a portfolio of offences that might have occurred. Obviously corporate manslaughter is one of them.’
The contribution of our Cllrs Convery and Braithwaite and others is noted at the end of the online article. Those who have been following the story on this site will be delighted at The Times reworking of our approach following local conversations with their journalist and their reading of this website.
The Times went out and measured the road, pored through the London cycle design standards, looked through Mr Johnsons apparently self incriminating statements in the Assembly, found the investigating police and went back to the 2008 report that condemned the junction. It’s an interesting example of a local website working with a national title.
