Several public figures have made ‘selfie’ videos to thank railway staff for keeping freight and critical workers moving during the Covid-19 crisis.

The politicians, sports stars and media personalities filmed themselves giving thanks, and sent the movies in to Network Rail which combined them into a short film.

Record producer Pete Waterman, Rugby World Cup-winner Lewis Moody, House of Rugby presenter Alex Payne, BBC Radio 2 morning travel presenter Richie Anderson, West Midlands mayor Andy Street, Rail Minster Chris Heaton-Harris and shadow transport secretary Jim McMahon are all seen in the film, thanked passengers who have stayed off public transport during this time and reminding everyone to “be safe, be patient, be kind” as Britain starts to emerge from lockdown.

Also in the video are two Network Rail staff members – Megan Noblett, Warrington level crossing manager, and Chris Conway, a signaller at Bamber Bridge, Lancashire – who thanked train crews.

 

Managing director of Network Rail’s North West & Central region Tim Shoveller said: “Thank you all Network Rail and train company colleagues for keeping Britain fed, fuelled and healthy. You are Britain’s hidden heroes.

“And while ordinarily we’d implore everyone to travel by train, I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to passengers who have stayed off public transport during this time. Please continue to follow Government advice on the use of public transport.

“We face more challenging days as together we seek to emerge from the Covid-19 crisis, so let’s all remember to … be safe, be patient, be kind.”
