The Liverpool Echo has the story on its web site – see link below
Quote from the article – ‘A Merseyrail driver was forced to carry out an emergency stop on a train in a terrifying near miss when three people stood in the path of the oncoming train.
The driver of Merseyrail’s Hunts Cross to Southport service reported the “harrowing” incident shortly after 4.30pm on August 31.
As the service was passing through Birkdale, three people appeared from behind a passing train going in the other direction on the opposite track.’
Wow how stupid can people be?!
