Woman from Island caught in tram tragedy aftermath

Five killed in Croydon accident

A former Isle of Man resident says this morning's tragic tram accident in Croydon has really shocked the local community there.

Teacher Amy Taberner, whose parents still live on the Island, was on her way to work in Croydon when she became caught up in the aftermath of the accident.

She was stuck in her car for over three hours as up to 200 emergency vehicles attended the crash scene at which at least five people were killed.

Amy says she's very familiar with the area where the accident happened and the tram service is well-used.
