    Train slips, trips and falls injure 1600

    By David Brown on August 1, 2013

    Over 1600 people have been hurt as a result of slips, trips and falls at leading train stations in the past year, according to new figures.

    And it seems train travellers on the tipple have been toppling over in big numbers at the 17 stations run by Network Rail (NR).

    Several incidents have occurred after bouts of evening drinking, with NR launching a new campaign on Tuesday, July 30 urging travellers to take special care.

    Leeds station tops the table as home to the most station accidents, followed by the London stations of Paddington and Liverpool Street.

    Station slips caused 51 bone fractures

    People are making personal injury claims after suffering slips, trips and falls on steps and escalators, over luggage and even off platforms between trains at these stations.

    In the past year these have resulted in:

    • 1 death
    • 51 bone fractures
    • 9 dislocations
    • 5 concussions
    • Dozens of bruises, cuts and abrasions

    A safety campaign includes posters at the 17 stations and a video placed on YouTube and on screen in stations.

    NR’s network operations managing director Robin Gisby said: “We do everything we can to make moving around our stations as easy and safe as possible.”
