Network Rail is being sued for £600,000 after a woman was killed on a level crossing.
Julia Canning, the sister in law of comedienne Ruby Wax, died at a public crossing at Fairfield near Marlborough while walking her dogs.
Her husband Spencer says he has never recovered from his wife's death and is being forced to sell his home. He is now raising their three children alone. He is suing the rail company for negligence.
Network Rail has already been fined £356,250 with £19,485 pounds costs at Southampton Crown Court for breaches of the health and safety law which led to her death after a prosecution by the Office of Rail Regulation. In June 2010 a verdict of accidental death was recorded at her inquest.
