MP's Grayrigg train crash concerns

An MP is claiming that lessons haven't been learned from the Grayrigg train crash, which happened 7 years ago. The disaster killed one passenger and injured 86 others.

MP Tim Farron says that a review carried out after the crash in 2007 was a "missed opportunity" to look at the safety of the points on railway lines nationwide.
