Train delays after man is struck by train

Train services have been delayed after a man was struck by a train at Southall Station this morning.

British Transport Police (BTP) said officers were called to the station after the man was struck by the 11.42am Heathrow to Paddington service.

A First Great Western (FGW) spokesman said the incident had been cleared and said services in both directions were suspended for more than an hour.

A BTP spokesman said: “The incident, which was reported to BTP at 12.02pm, is currently being treated as non-suspicious.

“London Ambulance Service paramedics also attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Officers will be working to establish the man's identity and inform his family and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
