Rail passengers will be able to report incidents to police via text message under plans announced today.
It follows the launch of a new non-emergency text number by British Transport Police (BTP).
The 61016 text number will be monitored 24/7 and whilst it is not for reporting emergencies, there will be the capacity to send a policing response if required.
