The family of a victim of the Potters Bar rail crash has failed in a bid for a public inquiry into the incident.
Seven people died in the Potters Bar rail crash in May 2002
Taiwanese journalist Chia-hsin Lin, 29, was one of seven people killed when a London to King's Lynn train derailed close to Potters Bar in May 2002.
Her parents, Kuei Chih Lin and Chen Far Lin, had sought a High Court order requiring Transport Secretary Alistair Darling to launch an inquiry.
The judge said a "full and enhanced" inquest was to be held next year.
Lord Justice Moses said this should meet all the parents' demands.
If it did not, Mr Darling had given an assurance that he might still consider ordering a public inquiry.
Lord Justice Moses rejected the argument that the refusal of the Department for Transport to order a public inquiry was a breach of the "right to life" provisions of Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights, because member states were obliged to investigate deaths where the state might be at fault.
Last October, the Crown Prosecution Service said no corporate or individual manslaughter charges would be brought against Network Rail or the line maintenance company Jarvis.
The two companies admitted civil liability in relation to the crash.
