The family of a Kirkby man who was killed on a level crossing nearly two years ago say that Network Rail’s apology for the way it treated bereaved families such as themselves is ‘meaningless’.

Father-of-three Phil Dawn (34), of Lindleys Lane, was struck by a train while cycling across the King’s Mill level crossing, near King’s Mill reservoir, in May 2012.

His devastated family has since been campaigning for a bridge to be built over the crossing and has repeatedly called on Network Rail to make the vital safety improvement - but with no success so far.
