Commuter railway services between London Euston and major cities across the UK have been suspended until 10am after a person was hit by a train.

Links from London to Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow across the Avanti West Coast Main Line have been called off, with the operator urging passengers to look elsewhere to get in and out of the capital.


Tragedy struck just before 6am today, while Avanti West Coast has said: “Journeys to and from London Euston are expected to be cancelled or delayed due to the emergency services responding to an incident between Watford Junction and London Euston which is blocking all lines.
