PICTURES: Grayrigg remembered

It’s been ten years since Britain’s last train accident that resulted in the death of a passenger, when Virgin Trains Pendolino City of Glasgow derailed at 90mph near Grayrigg, Cumbria, on February 23 2007.

To mark the anniversary, RAIL presents a series of images taken in the immediate aftermath of the crash, that was blamed on pointwork poorly maintained by Network Rail.
