Delays after attempted suicide at Sutton station
A woman attempted suicide at Sutton train station this morning.

The woman, believed to be in her thirties and from Sutton, attached herself to a gantry on the north side of the station.
Police officers spoke to her and tried to coax her down before storming up the structure to remove her.
The woman was removed and detained by police. She has been taken to hospital for assessment.
The police, the London Ambulance Service and the London Fire Brigade all attended the scene.
The British Transport Police said they were called just before 12am to a report of a woman trespassing and climbing on to a gantry.
