TWO Bromsgrove schoolgirls have been caught on camera risking their lives posing for selfies.

The young girls, named as North Bromsgrove High pupils on social media, were spotted messing around on the platform and even walking on live railway lines at busy Bromsgrove Station.

One of the girls also dangled her legs over the edge of the platform while her friend took several pictures.

Staff from the station were forced to try and halt trains.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Railway said: “The mentality of these girls is staggering.

“The pair were spotted and staff at the station were forced to message signallers who had to stop trains for the girls’ safety.

“Trespassing on the railway is not only incredibly dangerous, but can also lead to a £1,000 fine.

“Thankfully, trains were able to be brought promptly to a stand when these trespassers were seen next to the track by station staff and the incident reported to police."

They added: “Incidents like this not only put the lives of young people like these in danger, but can also cause significant knock on disruption on a busy line like the Cross City.”

Pictures taken from the railway’s CCTV shows the girls on the platform at 5.44pm on March 1.

Officers from the British Transport Police (BTP) attended the scene and warned the girls about their behaviour.
