The husband of Jane Harding, who was killed when barriers were left open at a level crossing in Herefordshire, has issued the following statement after Network Rail and the signalman were today fined a total of nearly half a million pounds.
“Just over three years ago, my life changed forever. On 16 January 2010, we lost a loving and devoted daughter, sister, wife and mother to a then 13-year-old son, in an accident which we now learn could have been prevented.
“If Jane’s passing is to have any meaning, it will be that, in future, rail and road users will be placed at the forefront of those in the rail industry whose responsibility it is to ensure the general public’s safety at level crossings.
