HC Deb 13 June 1910 vol 17 cc1164-5W

The inspecting officer who inquired into the accident of the 6th March recommended that the wicket gates at the crossing should be locked on the approach of all trains, as is already done in the case of those which do not stop at Townley Station. This recommendation was communicated to the railway company, and they have informed me that they have issued instructions accordingly.
