Suffolk and Essex rail commuters were facing long delays to and from London Liverpool Street this evening after a person was hit by a train at Stratford.

All services running through Stratford have now resumed, however operator Abellio Greater Anglia has warned commuters to expect residual delays to remain until 8pm.

A spokesman for British Transport Police (BTP) said: “We were called to the line close to Fairfield Road in Bow at 4.18pm following reports of a person being hit by a train.

“Colleagues from London Ambulance Service also attended and a man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious and officers are now working to identify him and inform his family.

“A file will be prepared for the coroner.”

MPs including Colchester’s Will Quince were “told to run” after a major security alert in central London.

MPs from Suffolk and Essex were caught up in the drama around Westminster – with several caught in the lockdown at the House of Commons as they voted in the Chamber.

At least four people have died after a knife wielding man drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London before stabbing a police officer outside the Houses of Parliament in an apparent terrorist attack.

Eyewitnesses have described the terror and destruction caused by a major terrorist incident in London today.

Community leaders in Leiston have put together an 18-point wish list of improvements they want EDF Energy to put in place if the Sizewell C nuclear power station is given the go-ahead.

MPs for north Essex, many of whom are on lockdown in Westminster, have taken to social media to react to events in the heart of London today.

Like the famous green benches of the House of Commons, the police are part of the fabric of Westminster.
