It has been confirmed that the passenger who fell or jumped under a train at Fulham Broadway this morning was a woman.

Emergency services rushed to the station during the morning rush hour, but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

A British Transport Police spokesperson says: " Officers were called to Fulham Broadway London Underground Station on Wednesday, July 17 after reports a woman was struck by an eastbound District Line train.

"Officers from the Met police, London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance attended the incident which was reported to BTP at 8.34 and is being treated as non suspicious. A woman was pronounced dead at the scene. A file has been prepared for the coroner."
