Woman caught lying on railway crossing in Milton Keynes
The British Transport Police are calling on people who recognise the pair to come forward
A woman caught on CCTV lying on a railway track, and a man who stood with her, have been called “foolish” by the British Transport Police who are appealing for members of the public who recognise the pair to come forward with information.
The images were shot on 13 April by a Network Rail camera used to monitor a crossing near Davenport Lea, Old Farm Park in Milton Keynes.
The woman and the man approached the area at around 3pm and stayed there for around two minutes.
They then stand and walk on the crossing, with the woman sitting and then lying on the rail.
“This is not only foolish but extremely dangerous behaviour and we are very keen to speak to both of these people,” said PC Robert Hagan of BTP Milton Keynes.
PC Hagan added: “Trespass on the railway is a serious matter, but the most shocking thing about these pictures is the risk those involved were prepared to take with their own lives.
“If anyone recognises either of the people in the images I would urge them to contact BTP.”
The BTP added in a statement that route crime costs the rail industry a significant amount of money. If trespassers are seen on a line, the current is switched off, trains delayed, and staff diverted from their duties, it said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference MSUB/B9 of 03/06/2014. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
