    Q692: What should I do if I see children playing on the railway?

    Trespass may not sound like a serious offence but, in the unforgiving environment of the railway, it can be a major safety hazard. Trespassers put themselves, rail staff and passengers in danger.

    If the children are currently on the tracks or elsewhere where they may be placing themselves or rail passengers in danger you should call 999 immediately.

    For non-emergency incidents you should call 0800 40 50 40 and report the location of the incident so that BTP can investigate.
