Frontline emergency teams star on tonight’s Inside King’s Cross: The Railway

Published on : Tuesday, March 14, 2017

1Emergency response teams at Network Rail have a starring role in tonight’s episode of Inside King’s Cross: The Railway. The show follows railway workers on the East Coast Mainline as they deal with major incidents causing disruption on the railway, carry out engineering works and help passengers.

 

The dangers of slips, trips and falls are highlighted, with the show focusing on the response of emergency services and the Network Rail platform team at King’s Cross station.Mobile operations manager Jamie Morgan is seen dealing with an incident in which a dog has been struck and killed by a train.

 

Every day is different. One minute I can be checking fencing along the railway and the next I’m heading to a bridge strike.The variety is what keeps my job so interesting, but it does come with its downsides. Sometimes we are called to upsetting incidents, such as the one featured in the documentary.

It’s really sad when an animal has been killed on the line. I’m an animal lover and we do our best to keep animals off the line, but sometimes they can’t be stopped.When this happens, I head out to try and get them back to safety. If they are injured we will always contact a vet and if they have sadly died, we will check to see if they are microchipped and reunite them with their owner.I hope people watch the documentary and see all the hard work which goes into running the railway and that we always try our best to deal with sensitive situations.
