A woman has died after she was struck by a train at a Needham Market crossing.

British Transport Police and Suffolk Police were called at 2pm this afternoon to reports that someone had been hit by the 12.30 train from London Liverpool Street to Norwich service at the Gipsy Lane level crossing.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “Officers are currently on scene working to establish the identity of the deceased and inform her next of kin.

“The incident is currently being treated as non-suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

Commuters and rail passengers should expect delays of an hour as buses replace the service between Ipswich and Stowmarket until 4.30pm.
