Police warning after two boys caught playing on railway crossing
POLICE are warning children to keep away from railway lines after two boys were caught playing on a train crossing.
Officers were called to the crossing on Swindon Lane in Cheltenham at 3.35pm on Wednesday after a pair of nine-year-old boys were spotted playing there. A police spokeswoman said: "Officers quickly attended and spoke to the boys and gave them strong words of advice about keeping safe when playing in the area, and obeying the warning signs and lights."
Sergeant for the area, Mark Stephens, is urging parents to discuss the dangers of railway lines with their children.
He said: "Playing on or near the railway tracks and crossings could have truly dreadful consequences, and they are not places that should be considered as playground by local children.
