A second life has been lost on the tracks this week after a man was hit by a train at Woking station last night.

The casualty, in his 70s, was found on the tracks after it was reported to British Transport Police at around 6:30pm.

Paramedics were unable to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

South Western Railway had tweeted that someone had been struck between Surbiton and Basingstoke.

Travel was disrupted through the evening as emergency services responded to the incident.

British Transport Police say it is not being treated as suspicious.

A file will be prepared for the coroner.
