Trains serving Watford were suspended after “a person was hit by a train”.

There was no service on the Overground line between Euston and Watford Junction, or on the Bakerloo line between Queens Park and Harrow and Wealdstone, yesterday morning (May 29).

In a Tweet, National Rail said that “emergency services attended” the incident, in which “a person was hit by a train”.

At around 8.45am it was confirmed that the closed lines had been re-opened, although disruption from Euston continued until later in the day. There is currently "good service" on the line today.

There have been no further details as to what time the person was hit by the train, or exactly where on the line the incident took place.

The British Transport Police and London Ambulance Service were contacted for more information.
