TSSA welcomes ORR prosecution of Network Rail over Grayrigg crash

13 January 2012

Manuel Cortes, leader of the TSSA rail union, welcomed the criminal prosecution of Network Rail today.

He said: "We welcome the fact that the ORR are taking criminal proceedings against Network Rail although we are disappointed that it has taken five years for this to happen.

"Our long held view, supported by last year's full inquest, is that this crash came about as a result of the bully boy regime which operated under former chief executive Iain Coucher and his cronies. Thankfully, they are now part of history."
