Shocking footage of people taking risks on level crossings

Police are looking to crack down on those who take unnecessary risks at level crossings - last year over 1000 of drivers were caught misusing them.

This week officers have launched Operation Look which is using the latest number plate recognition technology to monitor traffic crossing the train tracks.

It's backed by Tina Hughes who lost her 14 year old daughter and her best friend in a level crossing accident.

I'm always motivated to try and prevent people going through what we've been through because when there's a death on a level crossing they're pretty horrendous.
