Rail crossing concerns in Brandon

by Emily Knight

A level crossing on the Norfolk and Suffolk border which uses new technology to open and close its barriers rather than a signal-man, is causing controversy among drivers.

Drivers in Brandon say the barriers are sometimes stuck down for hours, causing long delays.

A public meeting is being held with Network Rail and local Conservative MP's Matthew Hancock, West Suffolk and Elizabeth Truss, South West Norfolk.
