An inquest into the tragic death of a young girl, who was killed in a collision at a Doncaster level crossing, is due to begin today.

Four-year-old Emma Lifsey suffered fatal injuries in the horrific collision at Beech Hill crossing, Misson Springs, near Bawtry, in December 2012.

The youngster was travelling with her Bawtry grandmother who drove the car on to the level crossing when the barriers were down but the visibility of the red warning lights was ‘low’, and says she only noticed the barriers and lights when she was very close.
