Youth dodges train at 50mph

Network Rail has launched a new campaign to stop children and young people playing on railway lines.

The organisation has released this CCTV video showing a man playing 'chicken' at Rylands crossing on the Manchester - Preston via Bolton line, where trains travel up to 50mph.

He was sentenced in Feb 2008 to six months imprisonment for obstruction without intent.
