Network Rail fined £3m over Potters Bar train crash

Network Rail has been fined £3m for safety failings over the Potters Bar train crash, which killed seven people.

The rail infrastructure company had admitted breaching safety regulations over the accident in May 2002.

Faulty points were to blame for the crash, in which a London to King's Lynn service operated by WAGN derailed near Potters Bar station in Hertfordshire.
