A driver crashed through car park barriers at a train station and ended up teetering on the tracks.
The 75-year-old man was arrested by Surrey Police after crashing his Mitsubishi Shogun onto the railway tracks at Kempton Park station.
As a result of the crash in Sunbury-on-Thames in Surrey South West Trains were forced into delays, describing the incident as ‘obstruction on the line’.
Officers from Surrey Police, Surrey Fire and Rescue, and the British Transport Police were called to the station on Saturday night, where they found the vehicle teetering on the platform edge.
