    ..didnt happen. According to Paul Clifton of the BBC, the media turned out in force only for the case to be withdrawn at the last minute. Apparently he says he couldnt have won, but 'did clear a shopping trolley to prevent an accident' - SWT disputes this.

    The conclusion - that he didnt have a case - is obvious, and tallies with whats been suggested since. I hope he's not expecting too much positive coverage, i doubt the assembled media would've appreciated turning up for nothing.

    Not surprising at all really, he'd have lost anyway so why go through the hassle?! :roll:

    The Guardian already have a story up, with quotes from both SWT and Mr Faletto

    Outlining SWT's argument:

    But of course we will never really know now.

    Btw, Heart seem to have the full statement from SWT, which also confirms there was no evidence of any call to a station or signalman, despite his claims.
