Network Rail faces death crash fine

Network Rail is facing a big fine in court over the fatal Grayrigg train crash in Cumbria.

The firm, responsible for the up-keep of the railways, has admitted safety failures in the lead-up to the derailment on February 23, 2007.

The 300-tonne locomotive derailed at 95mph after hitting a badly maintained and faulty set of points, with all nine carriages of the Class 390 tilting train coming off the tracks.
