Have a nice trip: CCTV catches escalator slips and falls

People with heavy luggage and wearing high heels are among those to topple over while travelling on Birmingham New Street's escalators.

CCTV footage released by Network Rail as part of a new safety campaign shows people at the busy station taking a tumble.

The first clip shows a man struggling with his luggage fall backwards, and - apparently giving up on the situation - continues to travel upwards with his legs in the air.

A second clip shows another person trip up twice as they struggle to keep their footing.

Network Rail has stressed that neither of the people shown were injured.
