    Yes, there may be some risk being out on a multi-track railway line. But in daylight hours as long as one is careful and keeps one's eyes out for approaching trains, and avoids stepping on middle rails it is pretty predictable and manageable.

    That is quite unlike the risk of a possible nearby bomb or armed nutter, where one may be killed or (possibly worse) seriously maimed in a way that is entirely unpredictable and uncontrollable.

    So in short, as others have said, you're being an utter wally about this.

    Rail power lines were cut as passengers "self-evacuated", police said
    I hope that means "evacuated from the train themselves" rather than, um, evacuated themselves!

    Honestly, has there ever been so many attempts to jump on the bandwagon to look self righteous.

    Panicing costs lives. There's nothing wrong with saying that you numpties. The story today could easily have been hundreds decapitated on the 6:22am to Euston.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
