Here is news from England. A man is at a train station. He jumps on the tracks. He stands there for a few minutes. People talk to him, but he does not move.

A train comes. The man is hard to see. He wears darks clothing. The train driver stops suddenly. The train stops close to the man.

The man is 21 years old. He goes to prison for 16 weeks.

Difficult words: tracks (two lines for the train), suddenly (quickly).
