‘No justice’ for Potters Bar rail crash victim Agnes
THE daughter of Agnes Quinlivan has said justice was not done in the court case against Network Rail.
Mrs Quinlivan – the South Mimms pensioner who was killed by falling rubble after the 2002 Potters Bar rail crash – was the oldest victim of the disaster and the only one to have not been a passenger.
The 80-year-old was killed by falling debris from the bridge over Darkes Lane.
Her daughter, Patricia Smith, hit out at the �3m fine, imposed at St Albans Crown Court on Friday, coming essentially out of public funds, and criticised the decision not to put Railtrack and Jarvis bosses in the dock.
Mrs Smith 63, told the WHT: “It was disappointing as the real people in the dock should have been Railtrack and Jarvis.

“In reality, this should have been about seven years ago – it’s too late and the people who should have been in the dock weren’t there.
Asked if at the conclusion of the case justice had been done for her mother, Mrs Smith said: “It has not been done.”
