Any idea why the blackfriars incident isn't being investigated?

Presumably they don't foresee anything being gained from investigating the incident. The RAIB only investigates a minority of incidents, mainly those are novel (e.g. the SPAD at Stafford, which had a number of very interesting factors) or likely to be repeated again with more serious consequences (e.g. cases where some definite change to normal operating practise is required). After a look at a couple of news articles, the Blackfriars incident doesn't look like it had much of a potential for danger or injury, and it more of an operational inconvenience.

Amazing that the train driver was uninjured even though the train's speed was 74.7 mph at the time of impact! Do they wear safety belts? Thanks for posting.

I see no reason he would be injured, he has several hundred tonnes of train and various laws of physics on his side.

"AHB crossings are arranged so that if a crossing is triggered spuriously and no
train is approaching it, the circuit times out after a few minutes and the barriers
are raised and the wig-wags extinguish. However, if a train triggers the crossing
but stops before reaching it, as happened here, the crossing remains in the
activated state with the barriers down and wig-wags flashing."

What exactly happens here? By "spurious" do they mean some temporary track circuit failure that disappears and then a few minutes later the AHB is released? Would a "simsig style" track circuit failure for a long time cause the AHB to be locked?

Yes, if it's a hard failure the barriers will stay down. If the track fails and re-clears or if an animal steps on a treadle the crossing will reset.
