York station keeps its secure status
9:23am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
YORK railway station has been reaccredited as a secure station under a scheme run by the Department for Transport and the British Transport Police.
Train operator East Coast, which manages 12 stations from its York base, including York, received an accreditation for each one for a further two years.
The scheme aims to encourage rail firms to improve security at their managed stations and demonstrate measures to reduce crime.
Tim Hedley-Jones, stations and property director for East Coast, said: “Train travel is already one of the safest ways to get around. Continued Secure Stations status means extra peace of mind for our passengers and staff.”
