Yesterday's BBC Breakfast broadcast about efforts made by the mother of one of the Elsenham victims to improve level crossing safety. The broadcast also includes a section at North Sheen.

In the last few days the court case has also begun over the Moreton-on-Lugg accident. Apparently the signalman is no longer being charged with manslaughter, but both he and Network Rail are being prosecuted for Health & Safety breaches.

For me, the most interesting quote from the broadcast is "hundreds of crossings will close".
