Railtracking

The University's Travel Co-ordinator has just circulated an e-mail explaining that a gate linking the railway station with the adjacent cycle track has been locked since the London bombings because it isn't specifically covered by a CCTV camera.

Does this mean that every access route to every mainline railway station in the UK is now being watched?  That it's impossible to get on a train in the UK without police surveillance?

Comments

I dunno, but it does mean that I have to walk all the way around to the main entrance to get to the station. I used to love that little gate :-(

I can see it now. Zawar al-Qaeda travels all the way up to Lancaster with 50lbs of explosives strapped to his belt, but when he gets there, he finds the little gate leading from the cycle path to Lancaster station locked.

Terror on the west coast main line foiled by the assiduous fastening of a small padlock!

If it's not covered by CCTV, how will they know if someone has broken the lock/gate?
