The funeral of a woman killed on a level crossing in Herefordshire has taken place.

Car passenger Jane Harding, a 52-year-old hairdresser from Marden, died when a train crashed into her vehicle at Moreton-on-Lugg on 16 January.

Barriers were up at the crossing, British Transport Police has said. Network Rail has apologised to Ms Harding's family.

The funeral took place at Hereford Cathedral during the afternoon.

Second car

A Network Rail spokeswoman has said: "We consider that the accident is most likely to have been due in some way to Network Rail."

Ms Harding was a passenger in one of two cars on the crossing at the time.

Her husband, Mark, who was driving, suffered pelvic and shoulder injuries.

A mother and her 11-year-old daughter in the second car suffered minor injuries.
