Delays after man hit by train at Tower Hill

17:54 25 February 2013

A man died after he was struck by a train at Tower Hill underground station today, leading to severe delays on the District line continuing into the evening.

The incident, involving a westbound train, was reported to the British Transport Police at 1.15pm and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

No trains ran westbound through Tower Hill for nearly 45 minutes following the incident, leading to trains running well behind time on the District between Earls Court and Upminster.

The death is currently being treated as non-suspicious, though a BTP spokesman said a file was being prepared for the coroner.

She added enquiries were still ongoing to establish the man’s identity and inform his family.

The Circle and Hammersmith and City lines were also affected with minor delays due to the incident.
