MOTORISTS were stuck at Tallington yesterday (Tuesday) after the barriers at the level crossing failed.
Network Rail were notified that the barriers had failed at 5pm and an engineer was sent out immediately. The barrier was working again at 7pm.
A spokesman for Network Rail said: “We appreciate that it was an inconvenient time for the barriers to fail but for safety reasons, they are designed to stay down if they fail.
“We apologise to anyone who was inconvenienced.”
