This morning, three people were declared dead after they were hit by a train near the Loughborough Junction in south London.
British Transport Police were requested to report to the station, which is located near Brixton, shortly after 7:30 in the morning “following a report of multiple bodies being found.”
Paramedics from the London Ambulance Service and police officers attended the scene. However, the men – who the police believe were in their 20s – were declared to be dead at the scene.
It is understood that some spray cans were discovered near the bodies of the men.
The officers have already contacted one family that the reporters believe was the family of one of the men. They are still trying to identify and search for the next of kin of the other two men.
The deaths of the men are being treated as “unexplained.” Police officers said that it was too early to release a comment on the reasons of the men for being on the track, They called on the people to refrain from expressing speculations on social media.
The BTP said that it is investigating if the men were graffiti artists and they confirmed that they were not employed to be on the tracks.
Gary Richardson, the Detective superintendent of the BTP, stated: “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.”
He added: “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.”
The commuters have been told that train services will be delayed while these investigations are made. They were also informed to check with the National Rail Enquiries prior to travelling.
