RAIL passengers are facing lengthy delays after a woman was hit by a train on the mainline service – but the lines have now reopened.

Greater Anglia reported that the woman was struck by a train between Colchester and Marks Tey.

All lines have now been reopened but cancellations and delays are expected to last until 2pm.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: “BTP officers were called to the line close to Chitts Hill, Colchester, on Thursday, 22 November following a report that a woman had been struck by a train.

“BTP and Essex Police officers attended the incident, which was reported to BTP at 10.58am and is currently being treated as non-suspicious.

“Medics from East of England Ambulance Service also attended, but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the identity of the woman and inform her family.”

“A file will be prepared for the Coroner.”

The train involved was the 10.25am Thorpe-le-Soken to Liverpool Street service.

The line was handed back to Network Rail at 11.50am.
