Rail services on the busy Thameslink route were cancelled earlier today (Friday, March 8) after a person was hit by a train.

The incident happened somewhere between West Hampstead and Luton over an hour ago. Some services have begun to run again but there are still delays.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Thameslink said: “Trains which usually run between Brighton and Bedford will run, but will be subject to delay / alteration / cancellation. Trains which usually run between Three Bridges and Bedford will be cancelled.”
