In order to deter people from drinking too much, British Transport Police (BTP) have released a video of a heavily intoxicated woman falling onto the tracks at Barnsley rail station

The incident happened earlier this year. Luckily, alert passengers rushed to the woman’s aid and she escaped with only cuts and bruise.

BTP says it could have been much worse.

Inspector Graham Bridges, of BTP, said: “We understand that at this time of year, with Christmas fast approaching, people will be out at parties and will be consuming alcohol.

“We certainly do not want to spoil this and would simply ask that anyone drinking alcohol does so responsibly.”

“As well as knowing your limits, official advice reminds travellers to plan journeys in advance and to “mind the gap”.
