INCIDENT: Melrose Avenue UWC+T, 21st January 2008

A pedestrian has been killed whilst crossing a line at Hoylake close to the scene of a fatal accident last year.

Clive Hanlon, 52, was hit by a West Kirby service on a user worked crossing with telephone at Melrose Avenue. No injuries were reported on the train, which did not derail.

Further down the line is a similar crossing at Sandringham Avenue where a woman was struck and killed last year.

The user worked crossings on the line have a history of misuse, including motorists failing to call for crossing clearance.
