Crossrail worker 'crushed to death'

An inquest has heard how a "hugely experienced" construction worker was crushed to death when nearly a tonne of concrete collapsed on him in a tunnel.

Rene Tkacik, 44, from Hackney, was working on a Crossrail site in March 2014 when he was killed.

BBC London transport correspondent Tom Edwards spoke to family solicitor Leigh Day and Peter Ferrell from the London Hazards Centre.
