A British Transport Police spokesman said a crash between a train and a car which killed two men on a level crossing in Grimsby last night, happened at the automatic half barrier crossing at Great Coates, and that all passengers were safely taken off the train.
We are keeping an open mind, but indications so far are that the crossing was working correctly and this was a tragic accident.
