Police say incident not being treated as suspicious
A person was killed by a London Underground train at Turnham Green station on Thursday evening (1 December).
British Transport Police officers and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service rushed to the West London station at 7.15pm to reports of a casualty on the tracks. They were unable to save the person, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers from the force are still working to identify the person and let their family know. A British Transport Police spokesperson said:
“The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
On Thursday evening commuters reported seeing “riot vans, ambulances, and police” and “many emergency vehicles” outside the tube stop. Another witness reported seeing emergency workers trying to help the person after the incident.
A Piccadilly Line Tube driver Tweeted:
Bit of a sombre one today, after the disruption caused by a signal failure yesterday, today a casualty on the track at Turnham Green caused the eastbound to be suspended. Not much more to say. It's horrible. Feeling for the driver, I've been in their shoes.
