Picking up the pieces: Andrew and Wendy

Duration: 03:05 minutes

It's part of the job, but doubly upsetting, because the railway shouldn't be a place of death, just a way of safely travelling from a to b.

But you never know how you'll deal with the brutal reality of a dead body on the line until you're called out to an incident.

Black humour, anger, a bottle of wine and a cigarette are some of the ways they get through it.
