INCIDENT: Loover Barn UWC+T, Kent 13th June 2008

A tractor was hit by a train travelling over a user-worked crossing between Glynde and Berwick in Kent.

Chris Brickell, 21, from Itford Farm, Beddingham, was uninjured in the incident. No injuries were reported on the London-bound train, which did not derail.

The driver claims that he called the signalling station and had been given permission to cross.

The RAIB have carried out a preliminary examination and will include the incident in its general investigation into user worked crossings.
