Bassetlaw MP John Mann has called on Network Rail’s shareholders to block bonuses due to be paid to executives following a number of deaths on level crossings, including four-year-old Emma Lifsey, who died in accident on a crossing near Finningley in 2012.

In addition to the accidents, Mr Mann also highlighted this month’s damning House of Commons Transport Select Committee Inquiry Report which found that Network Rail had showed a “callous disregard” to the families of those killed on rail crossings.

Today (Wednesday, 26th March) Network Rail’s public members, who double-up as shareholders, are meeting in London to consider the bonuses, which if approved will see three executives paid a total of £900,000 next week.
