British Transport Police have revealed the age of a person who was killed after being hit by a train at Earlsfield station earlier this week.

Officers were called to the station at 9.41pm on Wednesday following reports of a casualty on the tracks.

"Paramedics also attended but sadly a 20-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene," a BTP spokesman said.

"The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."

A London Ambulance Service spokesman added: "We dispatched our hazardous area response team, an ambulance crew, an incident response officer and a medic in a car to the scene.

"We also dispatched London's Air Ambulance by road."
