A collision between two passenger trains in the Western Region of British Railways was the direct result of irregular block working on the part of the signalman at Bristol East Depot Main Line. This accident would not have occurred if full block controls including one acceptance control had been installed on the down line. This control requires the berth train circuit at the outermost stop signal to have been occupied and cleared before a second line clear can be given.
