An express passenger train formed of 11 bogie vehicles, approached Connington South on the down main line at about 75 mile/h, and when passing over the facing connection to the down goods line, the rear five vehicles became derailed and the train divided between the seventh and eighth coaches. This derailment was caused by the movement of a pair of facing points under the train. The points could only have been opened as a result of deliberate irregular actions on the part of the signalman, who was solely responsible for the derailment.
