A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: "BTP can confirm that a man died this morning, Wednesday 1 September, after being struck by a train just north of Cambridge station.

BTP officers are at the scene near to Newmarket Road, alongside colleagues from Cambridgeshire Police and the Ambulance service.
