VIDEO: Network Rail level crossing safety film

The school attended by two girls killed at Elsenham level crossing in 2005 has helped Network Rail make a film to raise awareness of the dangers.

Olivia Bazlinton and Charlie Thompson, pupils at Joyce Frankland Academy in Newport (Saffron Walden), were killed at the level crossing in 2005.

Olivia’s mother Tina Hughes works at NR as a level crossing champion. She said: “I wanted to help Network Rail make young people understand and feel the awful impact experiences by the friends and family of a person who loses their life at a level crossing. I was never able to see or hold my daughter to say goodbye, and I don’t want anyone else to go through that experience.”

The film is aimed at young people aged 12 and above, and will be distributed to schools across the country.
