Grayrigg train crash: Son forgives crash engineer

The son of a woman killed in the Grayrigg train crash in Cumbria says he has forgiven the engineer who forgot to check the tracks.

Margaret Masson, 84, of Glasgow, died after the Virgin train derailed on the West Coast main line in February 2007.

The train went over a "degraded" set of points at 92mph and careered down an embankment, leaving 88 people injured, including two members of the train crew.

Now, five years after the crash, BBC's Inside Out has brought Mr Lewis and Mrs Masson's son George together to "close a chapter" in their lives.
