The incident happened around 9pm, and police and the ambulance service were called to the scene.

Services were disrupted, and railway Great Northern tweeted: “Due to a person being hit by a train between Stevenage and Arlesey, all lines are blocked.”

Around an hour after the tweet, Great Northern added that all lines had reopened.
