A video campaign aimed at promoting safety on rail lines has been launched by Network Rail.
UK rapper Wretch 32 and spoken word performer George the Poet have put their hearing to the test in a unique experiment as part of the campaign aimed at young men called Track Tests.
Last year 11 people lost their lives after trespassing on the railway in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire with 16-24 year old males making up four out of ten fatalities. Incidents occurred both at stations and along the railway.
A survey for Track Tests reveals that despite most agreeing it’s dangerous to trespass on the tracks, a third of people think they would hear a train in time to move out of the way.
