The driver of the high-speed train that crashed in Alvia, near to Santiago de Compostela, that left 80 people dead, has said that he had warned about the safety of the line in an email two weeks before the accident.
In a statement read out during the inquest into the 2013 rail disaster, the driver said that he had warned there were no automatic speed controls in place along the line, and that drivers had to remember to slow down.
The inquiry into the accident – Spain’s worst rail disaster in 40 years – is ongoing.
