Media Apology For Croydon Tram Crash Coverage
Yesterday morning (10/11/16) at approximately 06:06AM, tram flipped on route to Wimbledon from New Addington, when approaching Sandliands tram stop in Croydon.
This led to the death of 7 people (with this number likely to increase) and 50+ people getting injured, some with critical and life threatening injuries.
Despite this, the US election still received more news coverage than this loss of life and tradegy for Croydon people, families and friends.
This petition is to get recognition from the UK media that their actions were not acceptable and the coverage levels were poor. As much as the election is important, the UK people also want to know about what's going on in the U.K. and we certainly expected more coverage than what this tradegy received.
This is for the dead, the injured, their family and their friends. This is for the men and women from fire, ambulance, support workers and transport services that continue to work tirelessly to find out what happened, console those who have lost loved ones, helped rescue those that were trapped and operate on and try to repair those who were injured.
Let's get some justice and get our grief recognised.
