A signal man and Network Rail have been found guilty of breaching health and safety rules after a woman was killed at a level crossing near Hereford.

Jane Harding, 52, died when her car was hit by a speeding train at Moreton-on-Lugg three years ago. Signalman, Adrian Maund, was distracted by a phonecall and raised the level crossing barrier as the train approached.

Network Rail told ITV News Central today that it is 'deeply sorry', after being found guilty of breaching health and safety rules.

Jane Harding was killed in Herefordshire on 16th January 2010.

The train smashed into the car at 61mph and dragged the vehicle 150 yards down the track.

Adrian Maund is due to be sentenced on April 10th 2013.
