Leeds, London Paddington and London Liverpool Street stations top the table for the highest number of slips, trips and falls, the company said, urging, "Don't let a tipple turn into a trip".

Across the 17 stations Network Rail manages, there has been one fatality, 51 bone fractures, 19 dislocations, five concussions and dozens of bruises, cuts and abrasions as people have fallen on steps and escalators, over luggage and even off platforms between trains.
