No case for rail crash


NO CRIMINAL charges will be brought over the Potters Bar rail crash which claimed seven lives.

The Crown Prosecution Service ruled this week that there was not enough evidence for a realistic prospect of a manslaughter conviction.

A faulty set of points caused a West Anglia Great Northern train to crash at Potters Bar in May 2002. Network Rail and track maintenance firm Jarvis could still face charges under health and safety laws.
