Let's get the New Year off to a start with this....

An Edinburgh Napier University lecturer watched his friend plunge to his death from a moving train after the pair realised they were on the wrong train - and decided to JUMP off.

Fabian Galama, 53, and his Dutch friend Erik Suidman, 51, were travelling by train to Agra on the last leg of a two-week journey in western India on Tuesday.

But the pair mistakenly boarded an Express to New Delhi and decided to jump off the train as it left the platform.

Fabian jumped first and escaped with minor injuries - but Erik suffered fatal head injuries after he lost his balance as he jumped and landed inches from the track.
