The death toll from the collision of three trains near a busy south London junction six weeks ago has risen to 35 with the death of a 61-year-old man.

Alan Philipson, a passenger aboard a London-bound commuter train traveling from his hometown of Bournemouth in southern England, died of his injuries at a London hospital on Tuesday.Rail officials said the train Philipson was aboard slammed into the rear of another passenger train that had stopped for a malfunctioning signal about 400 yards south of Clapham Junction on Dec. 12.

A freight train traveling in the opposite direction then plowed into the wreckage and apparently hit some passengers, officials said.
