A MAN was killed instantly after jumping off a station platform into the path of a through-train late on Sunday night.

The driver of the 10:37pm Paddington to Bristol service, which was approaching Ealing Broadway station, reported seeing a man run from the platform and onto the track.

British Transport Police were called to Ealing Broadway National Rail station at 10:48pm on Sunday November 8 and the incident is not being treated as suspicious.

The line was closed for nearly an hour and was fully reopened after 98 minutes.

This latest incident follows the death of Eva Sanders of Orchard Gate, Greenford, last month.

The 51-year-old teacher was hit by a First Great Western express service from Swansea to Paddington on Thursday October 9 after apparently being seen stepping in front of the train.
