The Liverpool Echo has the tragic story – see link above – and my posting of 8th August 2015 also carried the story of the previous tragedy – see link below:-

Clearly Network Rail and Sefton Council have to urgently find a way of replacing this dangerous level crossing with a bridge which is suitable for pedestrians (and cyclists) of all abilities.

If this latest tragedy is not the spur to take urgent action I don’t know what will be. Why on earth did Network Rail not come up with an acceptable bridge after they withdrew their previous planning application?
