Network Rail fined after crossing crash

Network Rail has been fined half-a-million-pounds for health and safety breaches after a crash on a level crossing which left a young boy with life changing brain injuries.

10-year-old James Hew was thrown from the passenger seat of his grandad's car, when it was hit by a train at Barnby, near Beccles in Suffolk in 2010. Network Rail admitted failings to carry out an adequate risk assessment. Serena Sandu sent this report from Ipswich Crown Court.
