Man walking on Metro line - 'Absolutely senseless behaviour'

Officers from British Transport Police have released CCTV images of a man seen walking along the train tracks between Metro stations on the Sunderland line in the early hours of March 1. It has been described as 'senseless'.

“This was absolutely senseless behaviour and I cannot overstate just how dangerous trespassing on the railway is.

“Maintenance and freight trains often travel on the Metro and rail network overnight and then services start in the early hours of the morning, this man was extremely lucky he wasn’t injured or killed.”

“If you recognise him, or know his whereabouts, then please get in touch.”

– PC Mark Bradwell, the investigating officer
