VIDEO: Man almost hit by freight train at High Street crossing in Lincoln
Network Rail has released CCTV footage of a pedestrian jumping the Lincoln High Street level crossing, narrowly avoiding an oncoming freight train.
The footage is from December 14, 2012 and shows a male jumping over the barriers at 3.34am, just seconds before a freight train passes.
The CCTV has been released after plans were submitted for the new Brayford Wharf East rail footbridge.
Phil Verster, route managing director for Network Rail said: "This individual had a very lucky escape and these images reinforce the need for us to take action at both level crossing sites in the city.
