"The 1.17 p.m. special fish train from Tynemouth collided with the rear of the 12.35 p.m. from Newcastle Central electric passenger train, as the latter was standing at No. 9 platform at Manors East Station.
As a result of the accident, 9 passengers complained of shock or minor injury. All the coaches of the electric train were damaged, the rear coach considerably. One of the wagons of the fish special was derailed, and this wagon, as well as the engine, was slightly damaged."
