Shocking footage showing youngsters playing on rail tracks in Kent has been released to warn others of the risk to life.
The footage was taken at Simpson's foot crossing in Sittingbourne earlier this year.
Network Rail and the British Transport Police has introduced new technology as near misses involving children in the South East is expected to rise during the summer months.
The system will alert people using their phones near level crossings, to put them away.
Lighter nights and the summer holidays mean young people are more likely to have a near miss, with 70% due to distraction.
The top three distractions are friends (40%), headphones (20%) or mobile phones (12%).
29% of young adults admitted using their mobile phone while crossing a railway.
The young people in the CCTV footage were identified and the danger of their actions explained.
Locations where the new alert systems have been installed:
- Dibley’s foot crossing, Chartham, near Canterbury in Kent
