The Milton Train Crash in 1955

My grandfather was a GP in a village a few miles away at the time & also did all his own dispensing & had to order drugs himself. He had a patient with terminal cancer & ordered ten ampoules of morphine. When the drugs arrived at his surgery there were one hundred ampoules of morphine & he was furious because it was it was a dangerous (and expensive) error. That afternoon he was summoned to a terrible train crash where many died & over 150 people were injured. Many were trapped in the wreckage. He used every single ampoule of morphine that afternoon. He'd been an avowed atheist until that day but veered towards the agnostic thereafter.
