Grieving husband to face MPs on level crossing safety

A man whose wife and grandson were killed at a level crossing in Nottinghamshire will face MPs tomorrow to speak about safety.

Laurence Hoggart will give evidence to the Transport Committee after losing his wife Jean and seven-year-old Mikey Dawson in November 2008.

A bridge has now been built at the spot following a campaign by the family of teenager Lindsay Inger, who was killed at the same spot last year.

He told ITV News Central he would like to see footbridges built at every level crossing in the UK to prevent further tragedies in future.
