Passengers travelling by train through Wimbledon Station are still facing delays of up to an hour after a woman was hit by a train this morning.

South West Trains has reinstated all services except trains running from Exeter to London Waterloo which will terminate at Basingstoke until further notice.

TfL is reporting a good service on the District Line between Wimbledon and Earls Court.

British Transport Police officers have now left the scene.

A spokesman for South West Trains-Network Rail Alliance said: "We would like to apologise to passengers for the disruption to their services."

So, were the new "safety railings" closed or open? After 3 months of work on installing these railings at Earlsfield and Wimbledon, what was the point if the sliding gates are always left open?

The person was hit on the 'slow' line at platform 5 so the platform fencing wouldn't have made a difference.

I feel sorry for the poor train driver who, through no fault of their own, may never work again.
Suicide is not a criminal act and therefore no compensation can be given to the driver who now is possibly unemployable and financially ruined.
I also feel sorry that the family have to live through this selfish act.
The only person who didn't have a choice was the driver.
