by Samantha Parker

There's been a renewed call for a public inquiry into the Grayrigg train crash.

Yesterday Network Rail said they will plead guilty to health and safety offences.

Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron says victims and their families still need more answers. Samantha Parker reports.

"We know that the Grayrigg crash was caused by points failure, we also know there have been others of hundreds near misses and the job now is to make sure we find out why there are those near misses and how they can be avoided in the future. If that saves lives then it is worth every penny."
