at 7.30 in the morning?

Yes.

You get work over the weekend.

Metal is put aside when the crew finishes, normally early Monday.

So they turn up and start looking for unsecured stuff to nick.

I'm going with graffiti artists.

Or graffiti vandals, whatever you want to call them.

 

If you look it up on Google Maps it's right near a viaduct.

It needn't be as technical as that to cause carnage at rush hour.

They are all said to be men in their 20s. One theory is that they were graffiti artists and the driver of the train did not spot them.

Seems early in the day for that sort of thing.

Let's see when names are released..

Weird paramedics called at 9am, it is reported to have happened at 7.30. How do they know when it happened, or could they not be bothered to call anyone?

Maybe if they look like a pile of jam you might not rush as you assume they are dead?

[EDIT] I guess if the only train along a certain part was scheduled at half 7, and they were discovered later, that could explain it.

Seems a bit callous though, I would think that the authorities would be called as soon as. Maybe they wanted to get rush hour over with first. xD

Spray cans are believed to have been found near the bodies of three people killed when they were hit by a train overnight.

I hate being right all the time. :Old:

Quite often what happens is they get caught and leg it down the tracks and get killed. I don't agree with graffiti in particular "tagging" however the punishment if caught is often a very long stretches in prison.

Not really sure why you can easily get 10 years for spray painting a few walls.

I don't see what difference it would have made if the driver had spotted them. What was going to do, swerve?

Here's an interesting article on it if interested: http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/36570/1/why-do-graffiti-writers-get-sent-to-prison-for-so-long

Quote

On the same day that known graffiti writer Vamp was sentenced to 3 years for vandalism, a BBC presenter, Stuart Hall, was given 15 months for the sexual assault of 13 young girls over 20 years, between the ages of 9 and 17.

Because it degrades a whole city to have that shit sprayed over its approaches

Seriously? Long sentences for graffiti? Is that just graffiti near railway lines or generally?

I don't like graffiti but considering the numerous short sentences for violent crimes that we often read about getting 10 years for this seems unjust.

Not sure I agree, the only good thing about the dump that is London for me nowadays is looking at the graffiti and the level of skill / risk involved in creating it.  Can't stand tagging etc, but that isn't normally what these people that get sent down for, have been doing.

All I've ever spraypainted is my old alloys, and it didn't go very well. To create something like this requires incredible skill.
