Guildford Railway Station

A person died after being struck by a train at Guildford Station today (Monday, December 18).

Police and paramedics were called following reports of a casualty on the tracks and the power was turned off.

The identity of the person who died has not yet been made public.

A statement from the British Transport Police said: “Officers were called to Guildford Station at around 1.40pm following reports of a casualty on the tracks. Paramedics also attended.

“Sadly a person was pronounced dead at the scene. The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

South Western Railway warned of delays, cancellations and timetable revisions throughout the afternoon and said there would be disruptions until the end of the day.

Great Western Railway services were also understood to have been affected.

We understand that lines later reopened but delays were continuing.

    My heart is broken for this poor person and those who loved them. Pressures in our lives at the moment are hard to bear but with help they can always be resolved.
