Woman sustains ‘serious injuries’ after being hit by train near Ilford

12:11 28 July 2014

A woman has been airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after she was hit by a train near Seven Kings Station today.

British Transport Police said they were called to the station just after 12pm after reports a person had been hit by a train.

A spokesman for the service said the station was still closed, with cancellations and delays affecting services.

He said: “Our officers are investigating the circumstances.”

A spokesman from the London Ambulance Service said crews were called at 11.59am to Ilford Station.

She said the woman was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital by the London Air Ambulance.

Anyone with information about the incident could contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016 with the reference number 203.

Greater Anglia tweeted just after 12pm: “#Ilford - reports of a person being hit by a train with all lines currently blocked.”

The main lines have now been re-opened with some services on the move, but the company said cancellations and delays of up to an hour were possible.

TfL buses are passing tickets on routes 25 (Ilford-Stratford) & 86 (Romford-Stratford), with @c2c_rail passing on all reasonable routes.
