THE death of a woman whose body was found near a railway line is not being treated as suspicious.

The body was found lying next to a railway line at Forncett St Peter, just north of Diss, just after 10.30am.

Emergency services, along with officers from British Transport Police (BTP) and Norfolk police, were scrambled to the scene, where paramedics pronounced the woman dead.

A BTP spokesman said police received a call to a woman being struck by a train.

He added: “Police attended the incident which is being treated as non-suspicious. A file is being prepared for the coroner.

“The train involved was the 10.30am Norwich to London service.”

Rail passengers faced delays and cancellations while investigations were carried out.
