AN INJURED man was rescued from underneath a train at Debden station this morning.

The man, thought to be aged in his forties, was hit by an eastbound train at around 7.30am Sunday (April 22) at the Central line stop in Loughton.

Fire-fighters working alongside Tube staff and ambulance crews managed to get him out and he was taken to hospital in an air ambulance.

Essex Fire and Rescue Service said the incident was dealt with by 8.15am, but there were knock-on delays on the Central line.

A signal failure at Queensway is also added to disruption on the underground route.

The line was suspended between Epping and Woodford while the incident was dealt with. It reopened at 8.40am.

Fire crews from Woodford, Loughton, Epping and Harlow all attended the scene.

A spokesman for Essex Fire and Rescue Service said the man had been "rescued" but there was no further details on his current condition at this stage.
