BRITISH transport police have highlighted the "idiotic" behaviour of the person who threw a bicycle onto an Anglesey railway line moments before a train passed.

On Thursday evening, the child's bike was thrown onto the Level Crossing at Valley.

BTP North Wales said in a Tweet on Friday, October 4: "Luckily, the Network Rail Wales Signaller noticed and no damage was caused to train or bike.

"We see a lot of foolish behaviour in our job - but this was especially idiotic."

BTP North Wales added: "If your child lost their bike in Valley yesterday, get in touch and they will check if it matches the bike we have recovered."
