Rail Line Shopping Trolley Thrower 'Lucky Not To Be Electrocuted'
A person who threw a trolley at a train is lucky to be alive, transport police say.
Officers described the incident near Blairhill Station, in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, on Sunday night as ''stupid and dangerous''.
The shopping trolley was hurled through overhead power lines which could have electrocuted the person, British Transport Police (BTP) said.
The trolley was hit by the train, but there was no serious damage to the vehicle or injuries on board.
BTP have appealed for any information.
Pc Mark Harrington said: ''We believe the trolley was thrown onto the tracks before the train struck it.
''It's incredible that whoever threw it was not electrocuted, as the trolley has gone between the overhead wires.
''This was a stupid and dangerous thing to do and could have had very serious consequences not only for the person throwing the trolley but also for the driver and all the passengers of the train that collided with it.
''This happened in a residential area so it is likely that someone will have seen or heard people by the tracks around the time of the incident.
''I would like to speak to anyone who has any information that could help with this investigation. Please call me on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting reference number 460 12/02/17.''
