A woman was hit by a train at Angel Tube this morning.

British Transport Police (BTP) were called to the southbound platform of the Underground station in Upper Street at about 7.20am where they found the woman injured.

She has been taken to hospital. A BTP spokesman said the extent of her injuries is not yet known, but her next of kin are being traced.

The incident isn’t being treated as suspicious.

The Northern line was suspended southbound between Camden Town and Oval in the aftermath, but has since reopened with delays.
