UPDATE: Rail line reopens after woman killed by train at East Runton, near Cromer

A woman has been killed this lunchtime after being hit by a train on the line between Sheringham and Cromer.

She was struck by the 11.45am Norwich to Sheringham service at 12.40pm on the Bittern Line close to Thain's Lane at East Runton.

A British Transport Police Spokesman said: 'BTP and Norfolk Constabulary are attending the incident, which was reported to BTP at 12.40pm and is currently being treated as non-suspicious.

'Officers are currently working to identify the woman and inform her family. A file will be prepared for the coroner.'

A spokesman for Greater Anglia, which runs the trains, said a replacement bus service had been laid on to take people between Sheringham and Cromer while that stretch of the line remained closed during the middle of the day. The line is open from Cromer to Norwich.
