Liverpool Street runaway.

Initial reports say it could have been much worse than the rolling stop before the end of the possession markers.

Does such a train have a driver or competent person who should be at the controls? I know that in aviation, for instance when a plane is being towed, there must be a competent person at the controls to apply the brakes should something go wrong. Of course, if the plane is taxiing under its own power there would have to be a competent person at the controls without question.
