Police were called to a level crossing in Normans Bay last Thursday (December 11) following reports that a man was laying on the tracks.

Officers say the 21-year-old was attempting to harm himself.

Network Rail switched the power off at 5.45pm, causing delays on the line between Hastings and Eastbourne.

The man was quickly removed from the tracks and taken to a place of safety by Sussex Police.
