Karolina Górka left the Star Kings pub near King's Cross after celebrating a personal New Year with friends. She left at 1AM, but her friends Andrew Barnett, Leanne Hilliard and her husband Mark remained at the pub. Her housemate, Tamara Simpkin, had left some time earlier. On the way home, she went to the Crystal Kebab and ordered some chips.
She arrived at the underground, fearful that she may have missed the last train. Luckily there was a train on the platform when she arrived. There was no one else on the platform, except a man holding a shovel or similar and she remembers the train car being dustier and more grim than she remembered.
After a while of riding, the silence started to feel oppressive: even the adverts were replaced with packed in dirt. As she looked around, she realised there was a thin layer of dried dirt over everything in the train. She stood up to get ready for the next station, but there was no sign for an end. She tried to pull the handle for the release mechanism, but it had been rusted and she broke it when she tried to use it.
Karolina decided to head towards the drivers car. As she did, the sound of silence stopped and was replaced by the sound of metal under intense pressure. She forced open another inter-carriage door, but there was just a wall of soil.
At the other end of the carriage she saw another man in his late 50s with a grey beard and sunken blue eyes. He was pinned in place by the buckling metal of his chair. He didn't react to Karolina's voice, but when she touched him he stirred. He grabbed her wrist and drew blood, saying "not enough space to move, never enough to breath."
Eventually, with no further options, she lay down on the carriage floor, resigned to her fate. The earth pressed in around her as the old man started to scream.
She awoke in Walthamstow Central and stumbled out into the night air. She hoped it had been a dream, but was covered in soil and had finger nail marks in her arm still.
Post-Statement Follow-Up Edit
Karolina says she's done with the statement and isn't interested in follow up. Jonathan says there have been other disappearances, on both the Victoria and Northern line stations, although CCTV doesn't show them arriving.
One of the missing men is Nicholas Lekman, 63, who has a matching photo to what Karolina described and was last seen heading towards Moorgate station at 0230 on Saturday 17th December 2016 following a fight with his son. He was a severe claustrophobe and didn't take the tube alone.
When Karolina left, she left a great deal of dust behind.
Jonathan has explored the lower levels of the corridors and has found odd scraps of rubbish, suggesting that they may be human. He wonders how they are getting supplies. Basira isn't returning Jonathan's calls, and he worries that whoever is down there may be responsible for killing Gertrude, and resigns to stay away from the tunnels for a while.
