A campaign is being launched on Wednesday 9th May to warn of the dangers of trespassing on railway lines.

Stastics show that young men are most at risk of being hit by trains as they take short-cuts across the tracks.

Network Rail says that many people do not realise how fast trains are moving, and that a high-speed train causes a difference in air pressure which can pull people under its wheels.
