THE 50th anniversary of a train crash which resulted in the deaths of two pupils from Stafford’s St Austin’s School will be marked with a holy mass on June 6.

St Austin’s Church in Wolverhampton Road will hold the event at 10am in honour of the Lollipop Express.

The train derailed at Cheadle Hulme on May 28, 1964.

It had been carrying pupils on a day trip to York and the crash resulted in two deaths, four people seriously injured and many left traumatised.
