Tributes have been paid to the seven people killed in the Croydon tram crash as the borough marked the fourth anniversary of the incident today (Monday, November 9).

Authorities and communities in the borough shared their tributes to the victims of the disaster online, just days after an inquest into the deadly crash was postponed until spring 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"On this day in 2016, 7 people lost their lives and more than 60 were injured in the Sandilands tram derailment.

"At 11am @ayorOfCroydon led a socially-distanced civic ceremony at the town hall to remember this tragedy and pay tribute to all affected by it. #CroydonTogether," a spokesperson for Croydon Council wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

Others paying tribute included MPs in the borough and Crystal Palace FC, who posted an image of footballers and Palace supporters mourning the victims in Selhurst Park during a previous moment of remembrance.

Seven people were killed in the incident and a further 51 injured after a tram derailed near Sandilands before dawn and in heavy rain.

It was later revealed the tram was travelling at almost four times the line's speed limit.

The names of those who lost their lives are: Dane Chinnery, Donald Collett, Robert Huxley, Philip Logan, Dorota Rynkiewicz, Philip Seary and Mark Smith.

Last year, the Crown Prosecution Service revealed that following a three year investigation, neither the driver nor Tram Operations Limited or Transport for London would be charged following the deaths of seven people.

Prosecutors said the available evidence "does not support a prosecution".

Philip Logan's granddaughter, Danielle Whetter, was left devastated by the decision.

"You can’t even put into words how we’re feeling, it’s horrible," she told the Croydon Guardian in 2019.

"We were expecting it because it has taken so long, but it’s a kick in the face."

Labour MP for Croydon Central, Sarah Jones, said Monday the borough would "never forget" the victims of the derailment and added that the postponement of the inquest had been "devastating" for their families.

"On the fourth anniversary of the Croydon tram crash, we remember Dane Chinnery, Donald Collett, Robert Huxley, Phil Logan, Dorota Rynkiewicz, Phil Seary and Mark Smith. Rest in peace, we will never forget you.

"The delay of the inquest is devastating for the families who still want answers. I hope that it will be able to get safely started again soon," she wrote on Twitter.

The Labour MP also urged members of the public to sign a petition set up after the crash that urges a reform of tram safety laws:

"Please sign the petition calling for reform to the laws governing tram safety," Jones wrote.
