Rescue workers surround the wreckage of two trains which lie on rails in west London after a crash near Paddington Station on October 5, As well as the fatalities, more than other people were injured, including Paddington Survivors Group chairman Jonathan Duckworth, now 61, from Stroud in Gloucestershire. Travelling on the FGW train, Mr Duckworth said he was left 'battered and bruised' after being thrown around the carriage during the crash, and later he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The subsequent inquiry into the disaster revealed that the Thames service travelling from Paddington to Bedwyn in Wiltshire had gone through a red signal before crashing into the London-bound high-speed FGW train which had left Cheltenham Spa in Gloucestershire at 6.
The newly-qualified Thames driver, for reasons we will never know for he was one of those to perish in the crash, ignored warning horns blaring in his cab after running through two yellow signals, then a red, before impact. After the collision two decades ago, large fires broke out on the two trains and a significant effort was required to rescue those trapped in the wreckage, which later took eight days to clear. Brett Loft, a firefighter who was based in North Kensington at the time of the disaster, said: 'It's one of the biggest incidents we've attended on the railway in London, probably ever.
Stressing that lessons had been learnt, the Government's rail minister said safety is 'hardwired into the DNA' of the country's network on the 20th anniversary of the rail crash. Chris Heaton-Harris said the disaster was 'one of the most tragic rail accidents in recent times'.

He offered the Government's 'heartfelt sympathies' to those affected by the crash, which he said had 'fundamentally changed my view on how the railways work'. The minister argued that the incident and other crashes had lead to 'positive' safety developments. The Tory MP recalled learning of the Paddington disaster and the earlier Clapham Junction crash in , in which 35 people were killed.
He said: 'It was one of those moments where you knew someone who was on or you knew someone who knew someone who was on the train affected, or one of the people who was there to pick up the pieces. I don't think I'd ever seen anything quite like that,' he added. Mr Heaton-Harris said it was important to remember such rail crashes for the bereaved families and to ensure 'we don't have tragedies like these again'.
The minister highlighted that in there were almost 1.

It said the figures were low and it is too early to know if the rise is significant, but emphasised that SPADs would be a priority for ORR inspections in RSSB research indicates that more trains on the network and declining punctuality levels mean drivers are seeing more red signals, which increases the opportunity for SPADs. Mr Heaton-Harris acknowledged that there were still 'plenty of lessons to learn' and the need to 'maintain vigilance'. He pointed to the death of two rail workers killed by a train while carrying out engineering work for Network Rail on the line near Port Talbot, South Wales, in July.
An interim report by Network Rail said there was no official lookout in place to give warning of oncoming trains on the morning the two men died. Mr Heaton-Harris said the incident 'should absolutely not have happened', adding: 'We need to learn from every single incident and ensure that they don't happen again. Asked what the Government was doing to improve safety, he highlighted plans to introduce new safer rolling stock and the ongoing 'root and branch' rail network review lead by Keith Williams, former chief executive of British Airways.
The review is due publish its findings and recommendations in the autumn this year.
Reflecting the impact of past rail crashes Mr Heaton-Harris said: 'We do have, because safety is now almost fundamentally hardwired into the DNA of everybody connected with the railways, a much safer rail network. He added: 'We have learnt from them and it does mean that we have one of the highest standards of safety when it comes to railways across Europe, if not the world, for passengers, workers and the public.
