Transparency needed in investigation of derailment

There are no train accidents more serious in nature than collisions and derailments. They are unacceptable even when testing is being conducted, let alone in the rush hour when the trains were packed with passengers. It is a great blessing that the most serious derailment in the history of the MTR has not resulted in heavy casualties. The MTR has described the incident as "serious" and "extraordinary". It has not only apologised to passengers but also announced the establishment of a commission tasked with the investigation of the cause of the accident.
