Trains between London and Norwich are currently cancelled due to a person being hit by a train.

The person was hit on the line between Shenfield and Chelmsford.

A spokesman for the British Transport Police said: “Officers were called to Ingatestone station at 1.15pm today after reports of a person being struck by a train.

“Colleagues from the ambulance service also attended, however a person was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

“Officers are working to identify the person and inform their family. This incident is not currently being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
