A man has died after being struck by a train last night. 

Emergency services were called to St James Street station in Walthamstow, on the Overground line between Chingford and Liverpool Street, shortly before 11pm following reports of a person on the track. 

The man, who is yet to be identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

A spokesman for the British Transport Police said: "Our officers were called to St James Street railway station at 10.45pm on Monday after a report that a man had been struck by a train.

"Colleagues from the Metropolitan Police Service and London Ambulance Service also attended the incident, and a man was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Officers are currently working to identify the deceased and inform their family.

"The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."

Urmmmmm, Liverpool Street/Chingford line is NOT yet an 'Overground' railway operation. It is currently operated by Abellio, Greater Anglia, but it WILL be part of the 'Overground' franchise later in 2015.

Does this have any bearing that a poor soul died?

Our thoughts should be with the victims family.

Hypocrites, are your thoughts really with the victims family or are you doing the usual thing the press would say to make yourself look good.
