An investigation has been launched after the death of a woman who was hit by a train last Monday.

The woman, who was found dead on the Thameslink line near St Albans Road, Sandridge has been identified as Jeannette De La Harpe, 56, of Reims in France.

The cause of death is being treated as multiple traumatic injuries, but this will be determined at a later inquest.

Her death is not being treated as suspicious and her family have been contacted.
