The man killed by a train at Seven Kings station on Friday morning was 42 and from the Ilford area, according to police.

A British Transport Police spokesman said his family have been informed but formal identification has not yet taken place.

She added: “The incident is currently being treated as non-suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

Emergency services were called to reports of a person hit by a train at the station, in High Road, at 9.30am.

Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene and the area was cordoned off.

The station reopened at about 11.30am but trains on the Greater Anglia line from Liverpool Street to Shenfield are still possible.

The tragedy came a week after Anita Kaur Swali, 24, was killed by a train at Seven Kings on Valentine’s Day.
