Three people have been killed in an “unexplained” incident involving a train at Loughborough Junction station in south London.
Emergency services were called to the station, near Brixton, at around 07:30 BST on Monday morning to reports of multiple bodies lying on the tracks.
Paramedics from the nearby Kings College Hospital arrived within minutes, but all three people were pronounced dead at the scene.
The deaths are being treated as “unexplained” and police said inquiries are being carried out to establish the identity of the deceased and how they came to be on the tracks.
Detective Superintendent Gary Richardson from British Transport Police, said: “My team are now working hard to understand what happened and how these three people came to lose their life on the railway.
“My thoughts are with the family and friends of these three people.
“At this time, we are treating their death as unexplained as we make a number of immediate enquiries. I would ask anyone who was near to Loughborough Junction this morning, and saw something which they think might be relevant, please contact us as soon as possible.”
