Wimbledon Trains Cancelled After Person Hit By Train

Severe disruption after man dies at Raynes Park

Train services through Wimbledon are subject to disruption after a man was hit by a train at Raynes Park this morning (December 7).

South West Trains said this afternoon that trains running on the line into Waterloo from 6pm tonight (December 7) may be cancelled, delayed by up to 20 minutes or diverted following the rush-hour incident.

It is understood a man died after being hit around 9.30am.

There were no South West Trains running through Wimbledon for several hours this morning while the power was turned off as the emergency services attend the scene.

But the lines re-opened around 11am, with South West Trains warning disruption was expected until 10pm today.

They said in a statement: "The highly-intensive service that we run has meant that despite our best efforts, we have been unable to ensure that disruption is cleared by the beginning of the evening peak, and we still have a number of crews and trains out of their expected position. Services will be disrupted in the evening peak, and you are strongly advised to check that your train is running."
