Inquest Touching the Death of George Dicker

Inquest Touching the Death of George Dicker

An inquest took place into the death of George Dicker, who died on 9 May 2016, aged 26.

On the 9th May 2016 George Henry Dicker made his way onto an area with railway tracks and electrical lines having walked to the end of, and through a gate, onto the tracks at Woodside Park Underground Station. Mr Dicker is likely to have died following contact with the live rail and was then struck by a train. The inquest concluded it was an “Accident”.

At the end of the inquest, the Senior Coroner expressed the view that there is a risk that future deaths will occur unless action is taken. As a consequence, the Senior Coroner reported to The Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB).

The Senior Coroner recorded his matters of concern. He wrote that there is no alarm or warning to the signaller that a person has passed through the gate to the tracks at the end of the platform. He concluded that in his opinion action should be taken to prevent future deaths.
