A campaign to cut the number of slips and falls on railway station escalators has been launched by Network Rail.
More than 400 people took a tumble on the 17 biggest stations in the country in the last year - and 32 of those were at Birmingham New Street, placing it sixth in the chart for the number of accidents.
Trying to carry heavy luggage, rushing, high heels and alcohol have all contributed to falls.
Passengers travelling from Birmingham New Street station on Friday nights and weekends are being asked to allow extra time for their journeys. It is because of the huge increase in passengers using the station to visit the city over the Christmas period.
Network Rail say they will be implementing crowd control measures at the station over weekends to prevent overcrowding on the platforms. They say it means at busy times, passengers may be asked to wait a short while on the station concourse to allow platforms to clear.
Last Friday nearly 200,000 passengers used the station, a 75,000 increase on a typical day.
London Midland services between Birmingham New Street and Redditch have been suspended due to problems with line side equipment at Kings Norton. Replacement buses are being arranged between Longbridge and Redditch.
