Spanish couple walked on the railway track and thereby halted all traffic

A Spanish couple in their early twenties decided to so take a stroll  on the railway track in Tønsberg Saturday afternoon. This resulted in a complete shutdown of the raiwayl service.


The train traffic was resumed quickly, but the man (21) and the woman (20) had to take a detour via the local police station.

– The two will be on a plane from Torp back to Spain tonight. Both have accepted a fine of NOK 5,000 and have therefore been released, according to the police in Vestfold.

It was just before 2 pm that the young Spaniards were arrested while walking on the railway track in Tønsberg. Whether they had lost their way or if it was a deliberate action, is not known.
