Network Rail has launched a campaign encouraging people to take extra care after a night out after figures show more than 1,600 people have been injured in the last year at Britain’s biggest railway stations.
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.
