Answered By: 
The Mayor

Immediately following each derailment, HSE inspectors (from Her Majesty's Railway Inspectorate [HMRI]) attended the scene indicating which evidence must be preserved. Having satisfied themselves that this had taken place, the HSE handed the sites back to London Underground Ltd (LUL), so that LUL could begin service recovery and its own (LUL) formal investigations. HSE will conduct its own investigations and report in due course. .
