A person has died on the tracks at an East London tube station today.

London Ambulance Service (LAS) were called at 2.03pm to reports of an incident at Canning Town Underground station.

It sent an incident response officer, a medic in a fast-response car and members of Hazardous Area Response Team to the scene.

London’s Air Ambulance was dispatched and officers from British Transport Police attended.

An LAS spokesperson said that, unfortunately, a person was pronounced dead at the scene.

The police are treating the incident as “not suspicious”, and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

TFL had posted on social media that the station was closed briefly while emergency services dealt with the “customer incident.”

Images and video clips showed the air ambulance arriving outside. The station has since reopened, TFL has confirmed.
