'We've waited nine years to hear the sorry'

Network Rail has been fined £3m for safety failings over the Potters Bar train crash.

The rail infrastructure company admitted breaching safety regulations over the May 2002 crash which claimed seven lives.

Following the ruling, Network Rail said it was "truly sorry".

Pat and Anne Smith who lost their mother Agnes Quinlivan in the crash, told the BBC "we've been through the mill for nine years... and hopefully today and onwards they will put things right"
