Thank you to Bill Kelly, Network Rail Route Director for Wales and Borders for facilitating visit to the site of the major train incident in Llangennech, and to Gavin Bown of Natural Resources Wales for meeting us there.

Scary to see up close the extent of the damage done and what firefighters had to face. Impressive to see massive crane to lift up the tankers. Thanks to all those clearing the line and pumping up and taking away contaminants.

Still lots of questions to answer, and concerns about the impact on the estuary.
