INCIDENT: Great Shelford MCB CCTV 27/06/2006

An 84 year old woman was struck by a descending barrier on this CCTV controlled crossing. Reports state that she received minor injuries to her arm and eye.

It has been suggested that the timing between the audible warning and the barrier descent is around eight seconds. Witnesses state that the woman had crossed both tracks before the klaxon sounded.

There was a similar incident at this crossing in 2004 when a woman was hit on the head by a descending barrier.
