Storm Ciara: Flyaway Trampolines Cause Rail Delays

In the News

Flyaway trampolines caused rail chaos when Storm Ciara blew them on to tracks across England.

All services were stopped between Bedford and Luton after a trampoline struck a train and reportedly became stuck in overhead wires.

Trains into London were delayed when trampolines flew on to lines at Bickley and Chelsfield.

There seems to have been a lot of damage caused by storm Ciara, I found this article on trampolines quite worrying as most people don't consider pinning them down? Why not?
