Muslim train driver in Paddington crash had gone without food for 15 HOURS for Ramadan

The Sunday Express reports:
The accident, which occurred on June 16, was caused when the driver passed a red signal before coming off the track and hitting a mast - resulting in the station’s closure and rail chaos across London.

Investigators are now probing whether the accident occurred because the driver was undergoing a Ramadan fast and had not eaten in the 15 hours before the crash.

The Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) report states the driver said: “he had awoken during the night before the accident at 2.30am, to eat a light meal, as part of his observance of Ramadan.
