Man sought in connection with Train surfing
THE British Transport Police have
issued the following message:- "We'd like to speak to a male in connection
with an incident in which a man calling himself the 'Silver Shadow' was spotted
on CCTV on top of a train traveling at up to 100mph."
At about 1.30pm, on 11 December 2016, Police say that a man was seen boarding
the exterior of a Merseyrail Train, in between 2 carriages and waiting for the
doors to close, at Rock Ferry Station.
By 1.37pm, the same man can been seen on CCTV on top of the train at Bromborough
Rake Station, waving at passengers as it passed through the Station.
He then got off the train at Bromborough Station and at 1.39pm, was briefly
spoken to by Booking Office Staff. He concealed his face and told staff he'd
travelled from Birmingham and was called the:- "Silver Shadow."
Investigating officer PC Andrew Richardson said:- "Even attempting to get
on the top of a train is a nonsensical and idiotic thing to do. The man
concealed himself between 2 carriages above electrified rails and so 1 slip
could have easily killed him and endangered the lives of those on the train.
This isn't cool, it isn't funny, it's dangerous and we will not stand for it. If
you recognise the man in these pictures, please get in touch."
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on:- 0800
