A man who played 'chicken' with an oncoming passenger train on a footpath crossing has been jailed for six months.

Andrew Ogden, 21, from Great Meadow, Astley Village, had already pleaded guilty to obstruction without intent for the offence committed in July 2007 . Standing on the crossing with his arms raised, Ogden had jumped away only seconds before the 50mph train arrived on the crossing.

Inspector Gary Jones of British Transport Police said. "This was a shocking case of somebody blatantly showing off to their friends which could so easily have ended in tragedy".
