A name celebrated around the world: The story behind #WriteCharlie
In 2005, Charlie Thompson, 13, and her best friend Olivia Bazlinton, 14, were tragically killed when they stepped out onto an unmanned level crossing and into the path of a speeding train.
Wracked with grief, both girls' families struggled to come to terms with their loss and have since campaigned to improve level crossing safety, with Charlie’s father Reg Thompson appearing on This Morning in 2007.
Now Reg has published Write Charlie, a book which documents pictures of his daughter’s name written in exotic locations around the world. Reg joins us alongside Olivia’s mother Tina Hughes MBE, an ambassador for Network Rail, to tell us about Write Charlie and the importance of rail safety.
