    I found this highly informative. The majority of material I have read or watched previously about the King's Cross Tube fire tended to focus rather sensationally on the 'mystery' of the flashover that caused 31 deaths. Even material created twenty years after the event alluded to this. Investigative reporters or writers were always trying to 'solve' it. After reading this original report, it is clear there was no mystery to anything, simply a revelation on how fire behaved under certain circumst I found this highly informative. The majority of material I have read or watched previously about the King's Cross Tube fire tended to focus rather sensationally on the 'mystery' of the flashover that caused 31 deaths. Even material created twenty years after the event alluded to this. Investigative reporters or writers were always trying to 'solve' it. After reading this original report, it is clear there was no mystery to anything, simply a revelation on how fire behaved under certain circumstances that was identified through scientific experiment soon after the fire. The most revealing information I gleaned from the report was the poor level of organisation within station management, the lack of communication, health and safety training, and the blase attitude to the notion of fire in underground stations being inevitable rather than preventable. This report by Fennell, his recommendations, and their implementation went a long way to improving the safety of the London Underground for users and staff alike. I would recommend this report to anyone who is interested in fire safety, especially in underground railway stations, the role of management and communication in building an atmosphere of safety in the workplace, and ways in which management can empower those under them to respect the need to undertake thorough safety protocols, even if they seem 'boring' or unnecessary to the individual. The fire at King's Cross Tube station made rail travel safer for everyone. As is often the case, it takes the loss of life to kick-start positive action on safety, and in some respects, safety will always be reactive rather than proactive because no matter how wide-ranging imagination can be, no-one can foresee every circumstance. However, this report did change the health and safety culture of London Transport at the time.
