Rail passengers reminded to look out for their friends’ safety this Christmas

Festive party-goers are being urged to take extra care of their friends and colleagues - as new figures reveal that within the Christmas and New Year period, the number of violent offences recorded at railway stations fuelled by alcohol have more than doubled in the last two years. In light of these figures, Network Rail has partnered with the British Transport Police (BTP) and with the support of alcohol education charity Drinkaware, to urge Christmas partygoers to take extra care of themselves and their friends when travelling on the railway this festive period.
