Mourners have gathered for the funeral of a mother who died after the car she was travelling in was hit by a passenger train on a level crossing in Herefordshire.

The service at Hereford Cathedral came more than three weeks after the death of 52-year-old Jane Harding.

Her husband, Mark, survived the accident in Moreton-on-Lugg with minor injuries.

Mrs Harding's family received a "full and complete" apology last month from Network Rail, which is assisting an investigation by British Transport Police and the Rail Accident Investigation Branch.

The Reverend Heather Short conducted the service of thanksgiving, with music provided by organist Peter Dyke and the Cathedral School Chamber Choir, directed by Neil Moore.

Hymns included All Things Bright And Beautiful, The Lord Is My Shepherd and Love Divine, All Loves Excelling.

A number of prayers and tributes were said in memory of Mrs Harding, along with a special reading chosen by her family.

The text ended with the lines: "You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,

"Or you can do what she'd want...Smile, open your eyes, love and go on."

Mrs Harding, from Marden, Herefordshire, died after being airlifted to hospital on the morning of January 16.

Network Rail said on January 22 that, although investigations were continuing into the incident, it considered the accident was "most likely to have been due in some way to Network Rail"
