TfL has offered to pay for the funerals of those killed in the Croydon tram crash a week ago today, it has been announced.
The crash killed six men and one woman, and injured 51 people.
“The TfL Sarah Hope line is available 24 hours a day to provide advice on a whole range of matters and immediate financial and other support,” said London’s Transport Commissioner Mike Brown.
“This includes covering funeral costs and travel expenses for relatives,” he added.
There will also be two permanent memorials for the victims.
Gavin Barwell, the local MP, thanked those who had offered to help.
“I’d also like to thank everyone who has contacted me offering to help in some way. I have passed the offers on to the relevant organisations. I am very proud of how our community has responded to this terrible tragedy,” he said.
