Memorial to Leeds railway worker unveiled
A memorial garden dedicated to a Leeds railway worker who died when he was hit by a train has been unveiled.
Ernest Rodgerson, 60, was hit by an empty train just outside Leeds city station on 2 December 2009.
Mr Rodgerson's friends, family and colleagues attended the opening ceremony at the garden near Water Lane, Leeds.
The garden includes a brass plaque dedicated to Mr Rodgerson, who worked on the railways for 35 years.
A Rail Accident Investigation Branch report described him as an "experienced and safety conscious" man.
Carl Sinclair, a colleague of Mr Rodgerson, said he hoped the garden would be a fitting memorial.
He said: "It just goes to show that even in these hard times, when people are losing their jobs and businesses are going under, that people still care.
"This is a story with a tragic beginning but a very happy ending."
