Tebay: RMT rally
The Lancs and District RMT branch is holding a commemorative rally on Saturday 15 February, ten years after the Tebay rail disaster.
In 2004 four rail workers were killed and five were injured by a runaway rail wagon which hit them when they were working on a track at night.
The RMT has been campaigning ever since for safety measures to be improved for track workers, but the battle still continues.
The rally starts at 12 noon, a quarter of a mile south of Tebay, where the A685 crosses the railway line. Tebay is off junction 38 of the M6.
