Father calls for locks on rail crossings

The father of one of the teenage girls killed on a level crossing in 2005 has called for all rail crossings to be locked.

Chris Bazlinton told Daybreak: "People are people and things can happen too easily. There should be locks so that they can't go too easily onto that track."
