Network Rail unable to close 'danger crossing' in Poole

4 July 2014 Last updated at 21:20 BST

Concerns have been raised about safety standards on a level crossing in Poole.

Network Rail said the Dorset town's high street crossing posed "by far" the highest risk of all of the crossings in the region.

Recent incidents at the crossing include people deliberately lifting the barriers while they were down, drunks playing chicken with trains and a wheelchair getting stuck on the tracks.

But, despite the incident rate, Network Rail said there were no plans to change or close the crossing.
