  • Actually, all railways have legally had to be fenced since 1845! But, despite the railways' best effort, there is nothing to stop someone climbing over the fence, cutting a hole in it, jumping off a station platform, or using a pedestrian crossing (though these are being rapidly reduced following a spate of accidents).

  • We recently had our local MPs calling for fences on the Orwell Bridge. As this is the second incident this week, why are the MPs not asking for fences along the railway lines? If the Orwell Bridge is fenced then these incidents will increase.
