Just to be clear, my earlier post referencing the possibility of landing was merely speculation since at that stage it was not even clear whether the airstrip was involved or not. As for the "overhead rail lines", that was indeed simply the Daily Mail completely misconstruing the actually rather clear description by the railway company of why the train had to stop due to damaged power distribution cables falling across the track.
As DaveReidUK's recent Streetview post shows, the power cables actually cross the A40 in almost the exact location of the accident site (where the central reservation barriers split and overlap)..

Visited a number of times in Cessna 182, no problems with the Cessna short field capabilities. A well kept strip, but marginal I would have thought in a reasonably loaded Cirrus.
