Potters Bar rail crash firms face prosecution

Network Rail and maintenance company Jarvis Rail are to be prosecuted over the 2002 Potters Bar crash, the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) has said.

Six people died on a London to King's Lynn train which derailed after a points failure on 10 May 2002. A pedestrian was also killed.

A Health and Safety Executive report said poor maintenance was to blame.

Richard Scott reports.
