The death of a woman who fell from a railway bridge in Stevenage is not being treated as suspicious, British Transport Police has confirmed.
Police were called to the bridge over the railway at Julians Road shortly after 1.30pm on Thursday after reports that a person had been hit by a train.
Officers from BTP, Herts police and paramedics from East of England Ambulance Service attended, but the woman – since identified as a 56-year-old from Sawbridgeworth – was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman’s family has been informed and an inquest is expected to be opened at Hertfordshire Coroner’s Court.
