THOUSANDS of children have been warned about the dangers of playing on railway lines during the long summer holiday.
Safety talks were given to 24 schools in East London and south-east London this week by DLR staff with interactive presentations, as part of the rail network’s annual safety visits.
Youngsters were warned not to go onto railway tracks and told how to get help if needed.
The school safety programme, now in its sixth year, has seen more than 35,000 nursery and primary school children aged three to 11 in Tower Hamlets and neighbouring Newham, Greenwich and Lewisham.
