The incident, which happened at 5.34am on November 23, involved a 29-year-old.

The man, from Bournemouth, was pronounced dead at the scene.

All lines between Southampton and Bournemouth were blocked, and were reopened just after 10am, causing delays until the mid-afternoon.

“Paramedics and colleagues from Hampshire Police also attended, but sadly a 29-year-old man, from Bournemouth, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“This incident is not currently being treated as suspicious and a file is being prepared for the coroner.”

South Central Ambulance Service confirmed they had an ambulance and a Hazardous Area Response Team at the scene.

Passengers wishing to travel from Bournemouth and the New Forest towards London were advised to start their journey in Southampton or Eastleigh.

Passengers were being taken by taxi to Southampton and Bournemouth, where they were able to catch other train routes.

A replacement bus service was also in operation.
