Network Rail has been fined £4m over the death of a former film actress at a level crossing.

Brenda McFarland, known as Olive, was killed in August 2011 when she was hit by a train at the Gipsy Lane crossing in Needham Market, Suffolk.

The 82-year-old appeared alongside Sean Connery in The Frightened City in 1961, and in The Sweeney and BBC dramas.

The rail firm was sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court having admitted breaches in health and safety regulations.
