British Transport Police have evacuated passengers from platform six following the incident earlier this morning.


South West Trains tweeted: "#Wimbledon - A person has been hit by a train - all lines are not available for train use through this station at the current time."

TfL said District Line trains have resumed a good service following earlier delays between Earls Court and Wimbledon.

Another tragic incident at Wimbledon which is fast becoming known as the suicide station of choice in South West London. Condolences to the family of the woman who died and also once again o the poor train driver who of course bears no blame but must be traumatised.

There's a bit of a problem in this area, we've had this happen at Clapham Junction, Balham, Wimbledon and Earlsfield - all over the last few years. How awful that someone could choose to end their life in such a terrifying manner.

RIP to this lady and others who have died in a similar way at this station. I was on a train which hit and killed somebody who jumped off a platform at Wimbledon station coming up for 10 years ago. I saw first hand how shaken it left the driver (and some of the passengers as well). The driver is (in another way), as badly affected as the nearest and dearest of the deceased. It is a sad situation for all involved.
