BRITISH Transport Police today condemned the “unimaginably foolish” actions of a group of youths at a railway level crossing in Dundee.

Around 9pm on Wednesday, 3 July, the four youths, all in their mid-teens, were spotted swinging on the barriers of the Camperdown level crossing in the city’s East Dock Street. They also ran across the railway line after the barriers had been lowered.

Constable David McDonagh of British Transport Police based at Dundee, said: “The actions of these youths were unimaginably foolish and I cannot stress how dangerous this was. BTP and Network Rail have only recently stressed the real dangers posed by the rail network.”

He appealed for anyone with information regarding the identities of the youths to get in touch. The group are all described as wearing casual clothing.
