Crash in Hixon

Heart's been told it's important that any who lives in a Staffordshire village - where a fatal train crash happened - knows about it.

11 people died after a low loader transporter carrying an electrical transformer was hit by the Manchester to London train back in 1968.

Today, a memorial will be unveiled at the village churchyard.

Here are a few first hand accounts from that day 50 years ago.
