People with a lot of alcohol - level 2

Network Rail, which is the company that operates railways in Britain, has launched an interesting TV campaign.

It includes videos of drunk people who got hurt at train stations. They are clumsy and they do stupid things. For example, one video shows a man who wants to kick a bird. He misses the bird and falls from the platform onto the tracks.

More than 1,600 people have been hurt at British train stations in the last year. Network Rail wants to let people know and tell them that they should be more careful.

Difficult words: launch (start to show), clumsy (they don't move well), platform (the area where you wait for trains).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
