A Hornchurch man in his 60s died last week after being hit by a train at Barking Underground Station.

The incident happened at about 6.05pm on Wednesday, April 10.

London Ambulance Service sent a team of paramedics as well as an air ambulance, but sadly the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

They also checked over a second patient who didn’t need further treatment.

A British Transport Police spokesman added: “BTP and Metropolitan Police officers attended the incident, which is currently being treated as non-suspicious.”
