Network Rail fines

So Network Rail has been fined £4mm for negligence resulting in the Grayrigg crash.


Except, isn't Network Rail taxpayer-funded? So where's this money coming from? What employees or shareholder in Network Rail will receive a total of £4mm less this year as a result?

"Where failings are found those at fault will be held to account and the entire rail industry must continue to strive for improvements to ensure that public safety is never put at a similar risk again."
Mmm. "Held to account". I do not think those words mean what you think they mean.
