Rail danger alert.

Parents are being urged to remind children about the dangers of playing near railway lines.

With school half-term holidays this week, Arriva Trains Northern and the British Transport Police say it is vital the warning is heeded.

Arriva managing director Dyan Crowther said:

"Some children might think it could be exciting to fool around near railway lines, but the reality is it is incredibly dangerous and could result in serious injury or even being killed."

Arriva works closely with British Transport Police and Network Rail to reduce trespass. Anyone who has witnessed trespassing should call (0800) 405 040.
