The fatality has resulted in all lines between London Waterloo and Clapham Junction stations being blocked for approximately 40 minutes. Queenstown Road station is currently closed. Lines have now re-opened, however, a large queue of trains formed and trains are still subject to significant disruption until the end of service according to South West Trains.

London buses and Southern Trains will accept train tickets on any reasonable alternative route and London Underground will accept customers between London stations and Wimbledon/Morden.

South West Trains say their evening peak will be very busy and you may want to consider using alternative routes or taking a later train from London Waterloo. Queuing systems will be put in place at stations affected.

A spokesperson for British Transport Police said, “We were called to reports that a person had been struck by a train at Queenstown Road station in London at around 3pm today. Officers attended along with paramedics but sadly a man died at the scene. The incident is not currently being treated as suspicious. Officers are working to identify the man and inform his next of kin.”
