VIDEO: Emergency exercise named after victim of Grantham rail crash in 1906

Have your say

Exercise Georgiana tested the responsiveness of the emergency services this week when volunteers played ‘survivors’ of a rail crash in Claypole and of a tanker crash into the school on Tuesday.

The exercise is named in memory of Georgiana Baguley, one of the victims of the Scotch Express rail accident of 1906 when the 8:45pm service from King’s Cross hurtled through Grantham Station, left the rails and smashed through the parapet above Harlaxton Road, claiming 14 lives.

Georgiana Baguley, 33, was the only one who could not be identified at the time. She was buried in Grantham Cemetery.
