All train lines were blocked and Southern Railway reported delays of up to 60 minutes. All lines are now running.
Workers set up a cordon outside the station
Mike Cunningham was on the train and said: “All I heard was there was an accident and there was a body. We were on the train and the train stopped - we didn’t know why.
“They said it would just be a minute, then it became more serious and then the police came. They asked us to be still.
“They said 'please be still there is a body'. Then we saw people running to the front of the train.
“The police asked to be still again and they asked that we all get up and exit at the back of the train.
“They asked us to be very quiet and move quickly.”
The incident is being treated as non suspicious.
Railway workers set up a cordon around the station and advised passengers to catch a bus to Worcester Park.
