A man died after colliding with a train at Finsbury Park station yesterday.

Police officers were called at about 11.30am to reports of a “casualty on the tracks”.

Paramedics also attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “Officers are now working to identify the person and inform the family.”

The incident is not being treated as suspicious.

Network Rail yesterday tweeted: “We’re sorry to report a person has been struck by a train in the Finsbury Park area.”

There were subsequent delays to trains travelling to and from King’s Cross – but normal service has since resumed.
