CCTV shows shows young boys running across railway track

British Transport Police have released footage showing children running across a closed railway crossing.

It was captured earlier this month at Ducketts Crossing off Daleside Road in Pudsey, outside Leeds.

A boy is shown scaling the barrier, running over the tracks and tampering with the signalling phone. Officers are warning people to be more careful at crossings

Ducketts Crossing is one of the most problematic in the Leeds area, with 30 incidents recoded at the crossing in a three-year period.

These lads were just larking around but level crossings are dangerous places and they need to be used properly.

The railway environment is extremely dangerous and trains, which can be silent, travel through this area at speeds of over 90mph. It’s certainly not a place to mess about and I cannot over-emphasise how important it is for parents and guardians to make sure that young people understand the dangers of trespassing on the railway.
