"BTP officers are in attendance with colleagues from the East of England Ambulance Service, and a man has been pronounced dead at the scene.

"The incident was reported to BTP at 7.47am and is currently being treated as unexplained.

"Officers will now work to establish how the man came to be on the tracks, and to inform his family."

Greater Anglia has said it expects the disruption to last until at least midday.
