Grant Shapps: Too soon to say if cutbacks led to fatal rail crash


Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has claimed it is “far too soon” to say whether cutbacks to Network Rail contributed to the fatal Aberdeenshire train crash. The minister visited the “horrendous” scene of the incident near Stonehaven on Thursday, where three people died and six were injured when carriages went off the track amid heavy rainfall on Wednesday morning.
