Gap at Selby track "caused by staffing cuts"

RMT say a crack near Selby, due to staffing cuts, has crumbled to a much bigger gap.

RMT claim there is massive pressure from the Government to keep the East Coast Mainline running, as they look to re-privatise the service. They say there are also demands on Network Rail from the budget-holder, the Office of Rail Regulation, to cut back on rail renewals work.
