A man in his thirties died after being hit by a train at Ely last night.
Police said the incident happened just after 8.30pm.
A spokesman for the British Transport Police said: “BTP officers were called to the line close to Ely station on Tuesday following a report of a man being struck by a train.
“Officers from BTP and Cambridgeshire police attended the incident, which was reported to police at 8.37pm and is currently being treated as non-suspicious.
“Medics from the East of England Ambulance Service also attended, but the man, believed to be in his late thirties, was pronounced dead at the scene. A file will be prepared for the coroner.”
There were delays of more than an hour on all trains travelling through the city, though normal service was resumed for this morning’s rush hour.
