The Northern Line failed to reopen today as promised. Apparently the engineers need an unspecified further amount of time to finish their repairs. The official line from London Underground is that they don't know what caused the accident, an article in yesterday's Independent says that there were at least a half a dozen complaints from drivers about a section of track, pretty much where the accident happened. Meanwhile the BBC has evidence of massive failures to reach targets for safety on the Underground by the two private companies responsible for the track.
