BRITISH Transport Police officers are appealing for information after a youth fell through the top of a cycle shelter at a Sussex rail station.

Officers want to speak to two youths, pictured in the CCTV images, following the incident at Hampden Park station, Eastbourne, around 7.15pm on Thursday October 27.

A group of youths had gathered at the station, with a number of them clambering onto the acrylic glass cycle shelters.

However, the Perspex-like material on one of the shelters gave way, with one of the youths falling through and landing on the top of his back, close to his neck.

Concerned passengers gathered to help the youth, who limped away but seemingly without any serious injuries.

PC Paul Gardner said, “This behaviour was not only criminal, with the shelter damaged and the acrylic glass having to be replaced, but equally dangerous.

“Railway stations are not a playground and it is surprising that this youth was able to walk away apparently unscathed after his fall.

“We want to speak to any of the youths who were at the station that evening. If you were there, or recognise anyone pictured in the CCTV images, we want to hear from you.”

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference B4/LSA of 28/11/11 and the image number.
