The 25th anniversary of the fire at King’s Cross Underground station is to be marked by a union raising concerns over Tube safety standards.  Thirty one people died when a fire on a wooden escalator engulfed part of the London station on 18 November 1987.  The blaze is thought to have been started by a dropped match and led to a smoking ban at Tube stations.  Members of the RMT union will gather on Sunday at the station to commemorate the fire and highlight safety fears.  Bob Crow, the union’s general secretary said: “Due to a culture of complacency and systemic failure, 31 people lost their lives at King’s Cross.” He has called for London Mayor Boris Johnson to withdraw the threat of cuts to staffing levels and maintenance schedules and abandon plans to introduce more driverless trains.  Frank Dobson, the local Labour MP since 1979, said such tragedies highlighted the need for stations to be “properly staffed”.  “There are all sorts of propositions put forward by people ‘Oh, you can get rid of these staff and you can rid of others’ and then there’s even this idea of getting rid of drivers on the Underground trains, which may be all very well until something goes wrong.”  More than 100 people were taken to hospital after the King’s Cross fire, after becoming trapped as the escalator went up in flames.  Nobody has ever been prosecuted over the fire. The Director of Public Prosecutions and the Railway Inspectorate said there was “no justification” for charges.

A drunk man who climbed into a crocodile enclosure in Australia and attempted to ride a 5m (16ft) long crocodile has survived his encounter.  The crocodile, called Fatso, bit the 36-year-old man’s leg, tearing chunks of flesh from him as he straddled the reptile.  He received surgery to serious wounds to his leg and is recovering in hospital, police say.  He had been chucked out of a pub in the town of Broome for being too drunk.  The man, Michael Newman, climbed over a fence and tried to sit on the 800kg (1,800lb) saltwater crocodile.  “Fatso has taken offence to this and has spun around and bit this man on the right leg,” Sgt Roger Haynes of Broome police told journalists.  “The crocodile has let him go and he’s been able to scale the fence again and leave the wildlife park.”
