Newlyweds caught on CCTV posing for wedding pictures on railway tracks

A BRIDE and groom were caught on CCTV posing for their wedding pictures while standing on railway tracks.

It was one of 5,000 trespassing incidents on the railways between June and September.

The total of 1,239 in September was up 17 per cent year-on-year, and the most for that month in the past five years.

Network Rail’s Allan Spence said: "Wedding photos or selfies on the track are just plain stupidity.

"We often warn families at this time of year as kids enjoy school half term holidays but this time we are appealing to adults in particular.

"Please, make sure you know the rail safety basics and pass that knowledge onto your loved ones. Lead by example and stay off the tracks."

Hollyoaks actor Ellis Hollins had to apologise in July after posting images from a photoshoot on the railway.

Hollins said he was "irresponsible" and "careless to take part in such a dangerous situation".

Superintendent Alison Evans of BTP commented: "The railway is not an appropriate or safe setting for a photographic backdrop, no matter how scenic the setting.

"Every time someone strays onto the rail network they are not only putting themselves at risk of serious, life-threatening injury, but also delaying essential journeys."
