“Deeply worrying” footage of a man stumbling across a level crossing has been released by Network Rail.

Footage shows a young man jumping over barriers on High Street, Lincoln, and staggering across live railway tracks seconds before a freight train passes through at speed.

Lucy Gallacher, Emergency Planning Manager at East Midlands Railway, said: “This footage is deeply worrying.


“The person involved shows a reckless disregard for their own lives, as well as the safety of train passengers and railway staff.”
