Translink has released CCTV footage of near misses on railway crossings as part of its summer safety campaign.

The video shows incidents of level crossing and platform misuse at various locations across the network in Northern Ireland.

Translink said there is always a rise in the number of near misses and unsafe behaviour on rail lines over the summer and appealed for parents to help reinforce the message that they are not a safe place to play.

Richard Knox from the transport provider added: "We have a zero tolerance approach to trespass or anti-social behaviour.

"We offer a reward of up to £1,000 for those who give evidence which leads to a successful conviction”.

Part of the M2 motorway outside Belfast has had to be closed for a time as a result of a one-vehicle crash in the area.

The closure, in both directions between Sandyknowes and Greencastle, resulted in long tailbacks.

One man was injured and taken to hospital by ambulance, while Northern Ireland's air ambulance provided support at the scene.

The road has since reopened.
