Network Rail released a series of drunken near misses at train stations around the country, in a bit to convey more serious message about taking care when drunk.

From the perils of taking on a pigeon on the platform to riding the wrong way up an escalator, the campaign aims to highlight the potentially painful consequences of taking a tumble at a station.

More than 1,600 people have been hurt at stations in the last year, with the most falls being reported in Leeds and London.

Difficult words: convey (tell), peril (danger), consequence (result), tumble (fall).
