That this House remembers that 15 February 2009 is the five year anniversary of the tragic killing of four rail workers at Tebay who were struck by a runaway trailer loaded with railway ballast, which also injured and traumatised other rail workers; expresses sympathy with their families, colleagues and the local community; is alarmed that since Tebay there have been at least a further 16 runaways on the rail network, and that runaways have the potential to kill, injure and traumatise rail workers and passengers alike; believes that the rail industry should do everything in its power to minimise the risk of runaways and introduce better protections; notes with concern the slow pace in introducing such protections and the low priority this work seems to have with Network Rail; and calls on Network Rail urgently to address this continued threat to the safety of passengers and rail workers.
