The memory of 12 people killed in a train crash at Burton Agnes in 1947 has been marked with a plaque at the scene of the disaster.

The memorial is the culmination of extensive research by local historian Richard Jones, 33, of Bridlington.

On September 17 1947 a truck carrying 10 German Prisoners of War and two British soldiers crashed into the level crossing barriers in the village.
