TRAINS continue to be delayed today following a woman being hit by a train at Slough Station this morning.

British Transport Police (BTP) said that officers were called to Slough Station at 8.51am this morning (Monday), following reports of a person being run over by a train.

Officers from BTP attended alongside police officers from Thames Valley Police and paramedics, but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers are working to identify her and inform her family.

Great Western Rail (GWR) said: "Due to a person being hit by a train between London Paddington and Reading, trains are severely disrupted.

"Two of four railway lines have now been reopened, but significant disruption is expected to continue for the rest of the afternoon. The line between Slough and Windsor is also affected.

"Train services between London Paddington and Reading may be cancelled, delayed by up to 90 minutes or terminated at and started from Reading.

"Local bus routes, both FirstBus and TfL, will carry customers, as will other train companies from London terminals.

"Due to the nature of this incident and the subsequent Police investigation, train services will be disrupted for some time. Customers who wish to travel tomorrow Tuesday 9th January, may do so – tickets will be valid."
