LONDON， Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- A London tram was travelling at 70 kmh when it derailed and overturned on a bend with a speed limit of 20 kmh， killing seven passengers， an interim report revealed Wednesday.
The official Rail Accident Investigation Branch's (RAIB) is continuing an investigation into the tragedy which happened just after 6 a.m. local time on November 9 when a tram bound for Wimbledon overturned on a curve as it approached Sandilands Junction in Croydon.
The seven people killed in the crash were six men and one woman， aged between 19 and 63. The 42-year-old driver of the tram was arrested on suspicion of causing death by manslaughter and is currently on police bail.
In the report， RAIB said the tram travelled for a short distance on its side before stopping in the vicinity of the junction.
As well as the seven fatalities， a further 51 people were taken to hospital， with eight suffering injuries described by the London Ambulance Service as "serious or life-threatening". Including the driver， there were 60 people aboard the early morning tram.
According to the RAIB report， Tram 2551 left New Addington at 05:55 a.m.， calling at six stops， reaching permitted speeds of up to 80 kmh. It entered the curve on the approach to Sandilands Junction at a speed of approximately 70 kmh. As it encountered the curve， it derailed and turned over onto its right side， travelling for approximately 25 metres before it stopped.
The RAIB said at this stage， no evidence has been found of any track defects， or obstructions on the track， that could have contributed to the derailment. Detailed examination of the tram has not yet been possible， but initial investigation has not indicated any malfunction of the tram's braking system.
RAIB has issued urgent safety advice to the tram operators following the tragedy. The investigators said before the junction re-opens to passenger operation， the RAIB has advised London Trams and Tram Operations Ltd to take measures to reduce the risk of trams approaching the junction where the tragedy occurred at an excessive speed.
The train drivers' trade union ASLEF responded to the interim report. ASLEF organiser Finn Brennan: "It is clear that the lack of adequate safety systems were at the root of this dreadful accident."
The fatalities are the first to involve a tram in Britain since the 1950s.
ATHENS Cheap Nike Air Max Online , March 15 (Xinhua) -- Greece's football championship season this spring will be completed without spectators in a bid to put an end to hooligan violence following a long string of violence incidents this year, the country's Sports Ministry decided.
The games of the Super League were conducted behind closed doors this weekend and this will be the rule until the end of the season, the ministry announced.
The decision was made after one more match between two big football clubs in Athens last week was interrupted by violent clashes which broke out among fans.
Last weekend a young fan was severely injured during clashes outside the offices of a fan club in the northern city of Thessaloniki.
The championship was suspended twice over the past month after several similar incidents occurred inside stadiums.

Greek sports, in particular football Cheap Air Max 2018 Online , have suffered from hooligan violence for years, but the problem seems to have intensified in recent months.
