Work on level crossing gates which Cambridgeshire commuters said had been faulty for 18 months, has been completed by Network Rail.

In February the company said improving the crossing at Foxton would be a "priority" after two girls said they had become trapped between the gates.

A magnetic locking system was installed with CCTV and lighting to follow.

Network Rail had given commuters assurances the work would be complete by the end of the month.

The "major improvement works" had been delayed a number of months after the company experienced issues with suppliers, a Network Rail spokesman had previously said.
