unstar this property answer text <p>DfT works closely with Network Rail, the British Transport Police (BTP) and other security and rail industry partners to minimise the risk of disruption to rail services. The operation of Britain’s railway infrastructure lies with Network Rail and it takes threats to, and trespass on, the railway network very seriously. When unlawful protest occurs, BTP leads in the response, investigation and prosecution of offenders. Following recent events, DfT has reminded rail operators of the need to remain vigilant and to report unusual behaviour to the police.</p> more like this
