South West Trains warn of subsequent delays throughout the day
A woman aged in her 60s is understood to have been hit by a train at Earlsfield station this morning (February 19).
Paramedics, including an air ambulance, were called to the scene at around 9.15am and she was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting.
The incident has caused severe delays to South West Train services through Wimbledon to Waterloo. Trains were unable to use the lines for 45 minutes.
South West Trains later warned there would be delays to services until 4pm today.
They said: "Emergency services are dealing with an incident between London Waterloo and Surbiton, this is causing delays of up to 60 minutes to trains between Surbiton and London Waterloo. This is expected to continue until 4pm.
"The fast lines have now been reopened and Suburban services will run fast between London Waterloo and Wimbledon to keep you moving.
"Due to the length of time trains were stationary this means that trains and train crews are not in their correct location to start their scheduled next service.
"To get trains back to their scheduled time table we may need to cancel and run some services non stop between certain stations at short notice.
"Some Windsor services may start and terminate at Clapham Junction to help ease congestion. We have standby buses at key locations: Woking, Surbiton and Guildford in case they are needed to help you travel between affected stations.
"We will keep you updated when we have as and when we have information.
