Air ambulance landed at a bowling club this afternoon as police and paramedics attended an incident at a nearby train station.
The helicopter and emergency services were called to Woodford station at 11.16am after a 60-year-old woman received a “glancing blow” from a train leaving the platform.
A British Transport Police (BTP) spokeswoman said the woman was treated at the scene for cuts and bruises before being taken to hospital for a medical assessment.
She also confirmed the incident was not being treated as suspicious.
“The woman remained on the platform and did not fall onto the tracks,” she added.
