Station gets its safety status
BOSTON'S railway station has been re-accredited with secure station status.
It was one of eight East Midlands Trains stations to achieve the accolade this month.
The scheme is led by the British Transport Police, in conjunction with the Department for Transport.
It is a national scheme designed to recognise measures taken to improve station security and reassure passengers and staff that consistent efforts are being made to deter crime and anti-social behaviour.
Head of safety for East Midlands Trains, Andrew Edwards, said: "It's great news that eight of our stations have been re-accredited, and even passed with flying colours, making a total of 35 secure stations across our network.
"This is testament to the hard work of all our station teams who work hard to maintain a safe and secure environment for our passengers.
"We will continue to work with the British Transport Police to make sure our stations and train services are as safe and secure as possible for the millions of passengers who use them every year."
As part of the accreditation, the stations were audited by the British Transport Police.
