Joo Koon train incident was second collision in MRT history
Transit operator SMRT said 23 passengers and two staff suffered light to moderate injuries and have been taken to hospital. A commuter, Mei Anne posted on her Facebook page saying that she was on the train which collided with the other train.

The couple had been at a charity auction at Home House in Portman Square, Marylebone before they clashed.

Goldsmith pleaded guilty to one count of assault by beating. Kate heard specifically how Family Action - one of the charities providing support at the centre - offers perinatal mental health services.

A volunteer for Hornsey Road Children's Centre which is where the visit took place spoke about a discussion she had with Kate about dads feeling left out and said: "I think it's so important because dad's sometimes get left out in the mix after the birth of a baby and they sometimes get sidelined".

Julie-Ann is Goldsmith's fourth wife.

After he and Luan divorced, he married Julia Leake following a whirlwind romance. Their mother worked in a shop and also did accounts, while their father was a painter and decorator.
