Young adults are putting their lives at risk by using mobile phones in dangerous places, according to Network Rail.

It found that 17% of people have reported a near miss or accident when using their devices around the transport network.

One if five admitted to being on their phones while using a level crossing, while 27 per cent say they use their mobile when crossing a road.

Network Rail has warned that people who use their phones and don’t pay attention are putting their lives in danger.

We are investing more than £100m to improve level crossing safety across Britain, but we also need everyone who uses level crossings to do their bit too.

By paying attention to the warnings at level crossings and avoiding distractions, we can all keep ourselves safe
