Three Taggers have been struck and killed by a freight train we can reveal. It is understood that the trio were found near a number of cans of spray paint. Despite efforts of Paramedics none of the Three could be saved. It is understood that the men were discovered shortly before 7am.
Shortly after 7.30am this morning, officers from British Transport Police were called to Loughborough Junction in South London following a report of multiple bodies being found.
Police and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service attended the scene, however three people were sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers remain at the scene where they are working to identify the deceased and inform their families. A number of enquiries are also underway to establish the circumstances of how the people came to be on the tracks.
Detective Superintendent Gary Richardson from British Transport Police, said: “My team are now working hard to understand what happened and how these three people came to lose their life on the railway.
“My thoughts are with the family and friends of these three people.
“At this time, we are treating their death as unexplained as we make a number of immediate enquiries. I would ask anyone who was near to Loughborough Junction this morning, and saw something which they think might be relevant, please contact us as soon as possible.”
Train services will be delayed whilst these enquiries are made – therefore, please check with National Rail Enquiries before travelling.
