CCTV shows dangerous antics of drunk passengers

A new campaign to highlight the dangers of drunk passengers slipping and falling at rail stations has released CCTV footage of some of their worst antics.

The video, released by Network Rail as part of a safety campaign, includes a drunken reveller who tries to kick a pigeon on the platform but instead ends up on the track.

Other footage shows a man repeatedly falling down an upwardly moving escalator and a man leaning on a moving train before falling from the platform.
