A woman has sadly died after being struck by a train at Barnt Green Railway Station this morning. 

British Transport Police and West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the station on Fiery Hill Road just before 6.55am this morning to find a woman had been in collision with a train.

A WMAS spokesman said: “Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“Early indications suggest the incident was a tragic accident.”

A full investigation will now be carried out by British Transport Police to determine exactly what happened, but they have confirmed that the death was not thought to be suspicious.

A spokesman said: “The ambulance service attended but the woman sadly died at the scene. The death is not believed to be suspicious at this time. A file will be prepared for the coroner.”
