Man In Court After Train Crash

A 38 year old man from Littleport has appeared in court after a train crashed into a sewage tanker.

The crash happened at Little Conrad, near Sudbury in Suffolk, on Tuesday evening.

21 people were hurt in the crash.

Lithuanian Arvydas Bartasius appeared at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates Court earlier, charged with endangering safety on the railway.

The first of the train's two carriages was derailed in the crash at Little Cornard, Suffolk, on Tuesday.

The 1731 National Express East Anglia service, which was carrying about 20 passengers and thought to have been travelling at between 50mph and 60mph, cut the tanker in two as it made its way from Sudbury, Suffolk, to Marks Tey, Essex, police said.

Tanker driver Bartasius was remanded on conditional bail until October 1, speaking only to confirm personal details.
