Crackdown on low level offences on Midlands rail routes

Rail enforcement officers have started cracking down on low-level anti-social behaviour across the West Midlands.

Specially-trained staff from London Midland are targeting passengers who put feet on seats, play loud music or ride bicycles on platforms.

Those caught are cautioned and could face prosecution. Some passengers Chris Halpin spoke to today thought it was heavy-handed, but the company's bosses say the action will stop more serious offences.
