Three people have died after being hit by a train at a railway station in
south London this morning.

Police said three bodies were found on the tracks at Loughborough Junction
near Brixton, shortly after 7.30am on Monday.

The deaths are being treated as unexplained, British Transport Police said.


Detective Superintendent Gary Richardson from British Transport Police,
said: “My team are now working hard to understand what happened and how
these three people came to lose their life on the railway.

“My thoughts are with the family and friends of these three people.

“At this time, we are treating their death as unexplained as we make a
number of immediate enquiries. I would ask anyone who was near to
Loughborough Junction this morning, and saw something which they think
might be relevant, please contact us as soon as possible.”

I'll have a go at explaining - 3 scrotes pissing about on the tracks and darwin
finally caught up with them.

There's some poor sod of a train driver who now knows what the thumps
were last night.

Unlikely he'll have even heard it. But if he did hopefully he'll realise his
train has carried out a public service and removed some scum floating on the
top of the gene pool.

If it's a freight train I assume it will be headed by a powerful - and
noisy - diesel.

If you want the death penalty for vandalism, move to North Korea. Some
people here might have a bit more compassion for *all* involved.

I wouldn't have gone out of my way to kill them,
but I wouldn't have gone out of my way to keep them alive either.

their names have been released,

confirmation that they were graffiti artists (sic)

and "tributes have been paid to them"

And you no doubt did nothing daft when you were young.

We're talking about kids with spray paint, not submachine guns.

Kids? Reported as one aged 19, and two aged 23.

And I suspect I'd be told it's unacceptable to accuse all the main
opposition parties of wanting to "give kids the vote" by lowering the
voting age to 16.

Two of them were 23: at that age, I had a master's degree and a good
job. The other was 19: at that age I was working hard for my first
degree. I certainly wasn't going out vandalising things.

Indeed, and no-one advocates capital punishment for their offence. But
they were still vandals, deliberately putting themselves in a very
dangerous position. I'd have a lot more sympathy if they were trying
to do good when they were accidentally killed, not damage.

It's great that you cut my 2-line message down to 1 line. Oh, I know.
You did it because the internet is clogged, and we're all on dial-up,
and you wanted to save everyone the effort of reading my two lines when
you could benefit humanity by cutting it down to one. Really honourable.

I also did a few daft things. But not the same extremely daft and illegal thing repeatedly.

I also have little sympathy for people who repeatedly dash across STOP level crossings and eventually get hit by a train, bringing the entire train service to a standstill on two lines for half a day.

I imagine that there are some people who see the videos of these people being struck by trains and feel a profound sense a grief, as if there has been a huge disturbance in the Force. I admit that I feel no such "Why wasn't it me?" pangs.

The Guardian's "Art and Design" section has further coverage, including
a picture of some impromptu redecoration at the station entrance.
Readers unsympathetic to criminal damage may wish to look away now.

Here's a hint to anyone tempted to follow their example: the word
"insane" does *not* apply to the train.
