A man has died after being hit by a train at Turnham Green Underground station in the early hours of Sunday morning (24 June).
The incident occurred after midnight just before the District line service was due to terminate.
A spokesperson for British Transport Police said, “We were called to Turnham Green Underground Station at around 12.15am on 24 June following reports a person had been struck by a train.
“Officers attended and found a man, believed to be in his fifties, injured on the tracks. Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, nothing could be done to save him and he was declared dead at the scene.”
The death is not being treated as suspicious.
All trains were stopped from Stamford Brook on the Piccadilly line with trains having to be driven backwards to that station if they had already passed.
Turnham Green Terrace was also closed for a few hours after the incident.
The station reopened and Piccadilly night tube services resumed a few hours later.
