Transport Committee chairman says 'lessons really need to be learned' from Stonehaven crash

Conservative MP Huw Merriman, chairman of the Commons Transport Select Committee, said “lessons really need to be learned” about using trains in bad weather. Speaking after the minute’s silence at London’s Waterloo Station, he told the PA news agency: “We have looked, over my five years, at rail safety, and I’m very conscious that we have one of the safest railways in Europe. "But I’m also of the view that we mustn’t rest on our laurels, and there’s always more that can be done. “I think lessons really need to be learned about using the trains when the weather just isn’t suitable."
