A MAN has been killed after being struck by a train travelling through a Southampton station.

The incident, which is being treated as "non-suspicious", occurred at St. Denys railway station during this morning's rush hour.

Police had taped off both entrances of the station and commuters who were on the platform at the time of the incident had been kept in the station to help officers with their investigation.

But within the last few minutes, both entrances have been reopened and the line has reopened.

However, delays of up to one hour are expected throughout the morning for services between Southampton Central, Eastleigh and Fareham.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokeswoman said: “BTP officers attended St Denys rail station following a report that a man had been hit by a train.

“The incident was reported to BTP at 8.24am and was also attended by officers from Hampshire Constabulary.

“Paramedics from the South Central Ambulance Service attended, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Officers are currently working to establish the identity of the man and inform his next of kin.

“The incident is being treated as non-suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

The train involved was the 7.34 Bournemouth to Manchester Piccadilly service.
