Family claim "substantial damages" after railway death

The family of a steam railway volunteer who was crushed to death between two train carriages are seeking "substantial damages" from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

65-year-old Robert Lund, a retired police officer, died from chest and abdominal injuries at Grosmont station last May.

The inquest jury found that his death was an accident.

The railway's general manager said that Mr Lund's death was "devastating" and that they wished to support his family in every way they could.
