UPDATE: Smiths Lower Farm, Welshpool

A father and son from Shropshire have appeared in court following a crash on a level crossing near Welshpool involving a lorry and a train carrying more than 100 passengers.

Arthur Roberts, 45, and 15-year-old Leon Roberts, both of Cherry Tree Drive, St Martins, appeared at Welshpool Magistrates Court yesterday.

They both denied a charge that by an unlawful act, or wilfully, they failed to comply with level crossing regulations, endangering the safety of people being conveyed on the railway at Buttington on September 10.

The case was adjourned for trial in January and the pair were released on bail.
