The crane’s boom came crashing through part of the station roof sending debris onto the track and damaging cables over the track.

Two larger mobile cranes were called in for the recovery, it is not clear at this stage what caused the accident, although it is almost certainly a stability issue, with either one of the outriggers giving way or an overload.
