Network Rail have been fined £450,000 and have been ordered to pay £33,000 in costs after a woman was killed at a level crossing in Herefordshire. The signalman, Adrian Maund, was fined £1,750 and ordered to carry out 270 hours of community service.
He mistakenly raised the barriers after being distracted by a phone call at Moreton-on-Lugg on January 16, 2010.
The train smashed into the car at 61mph and dragged a vehicle carrying fifty-two-year-old Jane Harding 150 yards down the track.
