Train Operator Greater Anglia has announced that 63 stations across their network have been reaccredited with ‘Secure Stations’ status.
The ‘Secure Stations’ scheme recognises where the train operator has worked with British Transport Police and others to implement high standards of safety and security at the railway stations.
