Network Rail and the British Transport Police have deployed a purpose-built police van fitted with nine cameras, which will be used to deter motorists in Scotland from using level crossings dangerously.

Network Rail has funded the £60,000 vehicle, which is equipped with number plate recognition technology and computer access, allowing the police to process the offenders immediately.

The vehicle’s introduction to Scotland follows pilot testing in south-east England.

The camera van is one of three in the UK that have been funded by Network Rail.
