A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: "Officers from the London Fire Brigade and medics from the London Ambulance Service also attended, but a 22-year-old man from Chingford was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The man’s family have been informed.

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