On the second anniversary of the death of a Kirkby man, Network Rail has announced that a bridge is to be built over the rail crossing where he was killed to make it safer.

Funding has now been secured to replace the King’s Mill level crossing near King’s Mill Reservoir, with a bridge following a campaign by the family of Phil Dawn.

The dad-of-three was just 34 when he died on 2nd May 2012 after being struck by a train while cycling over the crossing.
