British Transport Police have detained a man found on the railway tracks in Lancashire under the influence of drugs.
The male was arrested last night at Kirkham, near Preston.
He was taken to hospital for treatment under police escort.
BTP Lancashire later tweeted: “Two officers remained with him all night, and two early shift officers have taken over this morning.”
BTP tweeted this afternoon: “Two early shift officers have spent 9 hrs at the hospital with the prisoner they are guarding. Two late shift officers taking over now.”
