Rail trespassing: 'Trains can't slam brakes like a car'

A warning has been issued after figures showed rail trespass incidents in Wales have risen.

British Transport Police said there had been a 19% rise, from 108 incidents in 2014 to 128 last year.

The organisation said longer evenings and the summer holidays "spell danger" for young people, who are twice as likely to trespass this time of year than in winter.

Lynsey Slawson's sister Victoria Swift was killed by a train in Wrexham when she was 14 and said "a lot more needs doing".
