PERSON HIT BY TRAIN AT WATERLOO




A person was hit by a train this afternoon at Waterloo, leading the Northern Line being suspended between Charing Cross and Kennington and the busy station being part-closed.

The Twitter account for the line tweeted at 3.58pm: “No service between Charing Cross and Kennington southbound only, due to a person on the track. Minor delays on the rest of the line.”

The person’s condition is not yet known.

The Northern Line and Waterloo station were fully reopened at around 5.40pm.

Passenger Paul Henderson told London24 what he experienced: “We were pulling in to Waterloo station. The other passengers reacted at what they saw - a person jumping on the track.

“We stayed on the train. The announcement was that there was a person on the track, and we were to stay put.

“About 10 minutes later, the police came and directed those on station away. They then draped a tarpaulin just near the door where I was. Thankfully I couldn’t see much. Another 10 minutes later and everyone on train was directed through three carriages and straight out of the station.”
