A man has died after being hit by a train close to Cambridge's railway station.

Police were called to the scene just after 9am this morning.

As a result, buses are replacing First Capital Connect services between Cambridge and Ely, and there is also disruption to Cross Country and National Express East Anglia services to and from Cambridge.

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.

The incident was reported to police at just after 9.20am and is being treated as non-suspicious.

Officers are working to identify the man and inform next of kin. A file will be prepared for the coroner."
