A WALKER was killed by a train as he tried to play a prank on a friend dur­ing a coun­try­side trek.

Joker John Townsend, 58, se­cretly climbed down an em­bank­ment near the line while on a 10-mile hike with his walk­ing mate.

An in­quest heard he wanted to jump out to “star­tle” his pal An­drew Wil­liams as he passed.

But he was struck by a train be­fore he could leap out from his hid­ing place.

The pair were near the end of their trek and were set to get the bus back to their homes in Pon­ty­pool, near New­port, when Mr Townsend sneaked off.

The in­quest heard how Mr Townsend climbed a steep em­bank­ment at Lit­tle Mill, Mon­mouthshire, but slipped onto the track as the train went by.

He died from mul­ti­ple in­juries.
