Be Careful On The Escalators This Christmas

Network Rail have released a pretty funny video with a rather annoying soundtrack urging us all to be careful on escalators this Christmas.

Apparently we’re not as good at using escalators as we may think, with 264 recorded falls across London this year. People who travel through Paddington however are the worst at using escalators with the top number of escalator tumbles totalling 54.

So when you are trying to lug all your presents home or maybe using the 24 hour tube services on New Year remember to watch your step as you might get a few bruises but you may also end up on a video like this next year! We’re not sure which would be worse.
