Shocking footage at a level crossing in Cambridgeshire, as a cyclist comes within inches of being struck by a high speed train.
Officers have released the footage in a bid to identify the woman who can be seen crossing the safety barriers before braking hard just seconds before the train passes through.
Police say it’s one of the closest near misses they’ve ever seen and are keen to speak to the woman about the danger she put herself–and others around the crossing in at the time.
The footage comes as Network Rail launches its Track Test safety campaign, which reveals a third of people think they would hear a train in time to move out of the way.

Difficult words: level crossing (place where a road and a railway cross), in a bid to (trying), brake (slow down or stop completely), keen (very interested)

Sadpanda watches TV

To most of us this panda named Sijia looks like your standard panda, chilling out and loving life, right?
Wrong. Sijia’s companion was sadly moved away from their zoo in China last week, and since then zookeepers have noticed her becoming depressed and not eating properly. So on Monday, worried staff at the Yunnan Wild Animal Park moved in some new company for the lonely panda: a new television!
Yes, Sijia now has her own flat screen TV to enjoy, after a swing and bars didn’t seem to cheer her up.
After staff played her video footage of her and her former companion, Sijia is now said to be much happier and comes out naturally to play on her swing.
Difficult words: chill out (relax), companion (friend), swing (seat on ropes for playing), cheer up (make happy).
