Man Hit By Train Near Thurso

After three people were killed when the Thurso/Inverness train collided with their car at the Halkirk level-crossing on Bridge Street in 2009, general calls were made to secure the various other unfenced level-crossings across the Highland Region. This month Network Rail announced that work would begin, including a half-length barrier at Halkirk.

Whether or not the latest rail death near Thurso occurred at Halkirk, this cannot come soon enough.
