Flood-risked parts of rail network to be inspected after train derailment

Inspections are to be carried out across parts of the country’s rail network deemed at risk of flash flooding to avoid a repeat of Wednesday’s train derailment in Aberdeenshire. Network Rail will inspect trackside slopes as part of a Government-ordered review after a landslip during heavy rain and flooding is suspected to have played a part in the incident near Stonehaven.
