A MAN died after being struck by a train at Ealing Broadway station on Saturday afternoon.
Police, ambulance and fire crews were called to the busy station at 12:10pm and an air ambulance helicopter landed at Haven Green as onlookers watched in astonishment.
A 45-year-old man from Chiswick, who is yet to be identified, was killed instantly at the scene.
A worker who saw the commotion outside his shop, said: "There must have been around 10 police cars and the helicopter landed and I knew something bad had happened. It was really scary and one customer said he saw the man's limbs on the line. It must have been awful."
The train involved was the Heathrow to Paddington service and the incident is not being treated as suspicious by British Transport Police.
The railway line was handed back to Network Rail at 2:41pm.
A London Ambulance Spokeswoman said: "We were called just after 12:10pm on Saturday January 30 to reports of a person under a train at Ealing Broadway rail station. We sent one ambulance crew, a fast response car, two duty officers and a doctor but sadly the patient had died at the scene."
A file is now being prepared for the coroner.
More as we get it.
