The family of an engineer killed while working on a moving walkway at Waterloo station have paid tribute to “a hardworking, loving father”.
Christian Tuvi, 44, died in the early hours of Wednesday while repairing a walkway at the London Underground interchange.
Emergency services were called to the station shortly after 02:20 BST but he died at the scene.
Mr Tuvi, from Cambridgeshire, had a partner and three young children.
The engineer was also a member of the Army Reserve based at City of London Field Hospital.
Speaking on behalf of the family, solicitor Charlotte Rankin said: “The family have been left devastated by the death of Christian.
“He was a hardworking, loving father, and the last thing they expected when he went to work last Wednesday was that they would have a knock on the door from the police to tell them that he had been involved in such a horrific incident, with such tragic consequences.
“The family have welcomed calls from the mayor for a full investigation to take place, and it is their hope that any lessons learnt from what occurred are acted upon with urgency to ensure nothing like this happens again moving forward.
“They would like to express their gratitude to everyone who has demonstrated their support to date, and to those who are keeping them in their prayers at this difficult time.”
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said an urgent inquiry was “vital” to ensure such an incident did not happen again.
Managing director of London Underground Vernon Everitt said transport bosses were “fully supporting the urgent investigations being carried out by the Office of Rail and Road and the British Transport Police”.
“It is absolutely vital that we understand how this happened and ensure that it never happens again,” he said.
London’s Waterloo Station is to house a monument to the Windrush generation, the prime minister has announced.
Theresa May said the monument would be seen by “millions of people from all around the world” every year.
The Windrush Commemoration Committee, set up by the government last year, will work with designers on the “next steps over the coming months”.
Events are taking place across the country on Saturday to mark the first National Windrush Day.
Mrs May said: “This monument will be a lasting legacy to the tremendous contribution the Windrush generation and their children have made to our great country.”
Baroness Floella Benjamin, chair of the Windrush Commemoration Committee, said: “Having a Windrush monument located at Waterloo Station where thousands of Windrush pioneers – including children like myself – first arrived in London, will be a symbolic link to our past as we celebrate our future.”
Janice Irwin, from community group Ageless Teenagers, described the plans as “fantastic”, but also “long overdue”, and said it was “a little strange” that it would be built at Waterloo Station, and not Brixton where many people from the Windrush generation settled.
The Windrush generation arrived from Commonwealth countries between 1948 and 1971 and had lived in the UK for decades when some were wrongly told they were in the country illegally.
Some lost their right to work or get NHS treatment, while others were detained or deported.
The then Home Secretary Amber Rudd apologised last year for the deportation threats, calling the scandal “wrong” and “appalling”.
An estimated 500,000 people now living in the UK have been called the Windrush generation, in reference to the name of a ship which brought workers to the UK from Caribbean countries in 1948.
