Police have ruled out foul play over the death of a woman hit by a train in King's Lynn.

Officers were called to the Nowhere level crossing, on the outskirts of the town, on Friday night.

In a statement today, British Transport Police said: 'A 50-year-old woman has sadly died after she was struck by a train at Nowhere Level Crossing near King's Lynn on Friday evening. Officers were called to the level crossing shortly after 10.30pm and attended alongside paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service. Her family have been told. This incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.'

Passengers on board a train due to arrive at Lynn at 10.26pm waited more than two hours for the line to be cleared. One said: 'Apparently the train has hit someone, we're stuck here. Police and ambulance have arrived, we've all been moved to the front of the train.'
