All lines going through Stevenage railway station are blocked after a person was hit by a train this morning.

Train operator Govia Thameslink tweeted from its Great Northern account at 10.44am to say emergency services are dealing with incident at the station, and has since confirmed that a person has been hit by a train.

British Transport Police have confirmed officers are at the scene, but were unable to comment further at this time.

Train services may be cancelled, delayed or revised by up to an hour – with disruption currently expected between Stevenage and Peterborough until 1pm.

On the Great Northern website, it says: “The emergency services are attending to an incident and the railway lines are closed. Network Rail and Great Northern are working with the emergency services to reopen the railway lines as quickly as possible.

“While this incident is ongoing, our services may be delayed or subject to alteration. Once the railway is reopened, Great Northern will be working to restore the train service to the normal timetable as quickly as possible.”
