Letting children skate on thin ice

Network Rail says it is significantly reducing risks at railway level crossings in the UK.

Letting children skate on thin ice, written by Paul Coleman and published on the main London Intelligence website, provides an account of ongoing developments in level crossing safety since the fatalities at Elsenham in December 2005.
