A MAN died after being struck by a train at Radlett railway station on Friday night.

The incident was reported just after 7.20pm and officers from both the British Transport Police (BTP) and Herts Police attended.

Ambulance crews pronounced the man, believed to be 37-years-old and from St Albans, dead at the scene.

A spokesperson for the BTP said that the death is being treated as non-suspicious at present and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

The service involved was the 5.24pm Brighton to Bedford service run by First Capital Connect and a spokesperson for the train operator said that it resulted in delays, cancellations and alterations for the rest of the evening.

He added: “We worked to minimise the disruption and keep customers informed as much as possible.”
