Nicola Maasdam, chairwoman of Great Coates Village Council, told reporters that residents would be in "shock" after a train crash on a level crossing last night that claimed the lives of two men. The car the pair were in was hit by a train travelling at 60 miles per hour.
It's absolutely tragic and our thoughts go out to the families of those people who have lost their lives," she said. There will be shock. It's such a small village and we haven't had an incident on the railway for years and years, and for something as serious as this, it is really upsetting.
