Independent Learning Log #3 by Lucas

What I did: 
I was researching for interesting articles on BBC News and came across this article.

A passenger train crashed into the back of a goods train at high speed at about 23:00 (21:00 GMT).Two of the six carriages derailed and are lying on the tracks.

The train, with about 40 people on board, was travelling between Liege and Namur at about 90km/h (55mph) when it hit the goods train.

Belgium's rail infrastructure manager, Infrabel said there had been what it called a "lightning incident" on the track earlier on Sunday and a tweet by SNCB had mentioned a signalling fault on the line at 21:30 local time on Sunday, although it said this had been cleared and services were normal.
