The survivor of the Paddington rail crash and campaigner for rail safety shares her brave and inspiring story.
In October 1999, Pam Warren was involved in the Paddington rail crash, which killed 31 people. She was not expected to survive, and the photograph of her in a plastic mask became the iconic image of the tragedy. Her road to physical and mental recovery was accompanied by committed activism to improve rail safety – a campaign which forced the Transport Minister to resign for lying to the House of Commons and led Tony Blair to smear her. Hers is a brave and inspiring story.
