"Former UKIP candidate for Hove, Paul Perrin, chose to tweet this message this morning...I am popping into Croydon, think I'll find a drunk cabbie to drive me - safer than the tram..." What an idiot

A very good question finally, so many lives at risks when such infrastructural errors occur. The mayor needs to work harder in getting maintenance carried out more often to avoid these in the near future. https://www.death-notices.co.uk/england
