Rail fare dodgers targeted at West Sussex crossings

More than 60 people were warned, issued with penalty notices or prosecuted in a crackdown on fare evasion at railway stations in West Sussex.

Southbourne, Chichester, Barnham and Angmering stations were targeted on Friday in the operation at stations with level crossings nearby.

Nine prosecution notices were issued, along with 33 penalty fares and 21 warnings for anti-social behaviour.

Three people were charged after they jumped over level crossings.

Operation Petra was carried out by Southern Railway's safer travel team, British Transport Police, Sussex Police and Chichester District Council.
