UK Railway Police Release Track Jumping Idiocy Highlight Reel

By Gary Cutlack on at

Keen to highlight the dangers of playing on the railway lines, British Transport Police has released a horrendous compilation of CCTV footage showing people risking their legs and their lives in and around the UK's train stations and lines.

The BTP says the chap in question survived, although was left unable to walk. He consented to the footage of his accident being released to serve as a shocking warning to others not to be as silly. And it certainly does that job.
