“Shortly before 8:20pm, officers were called to Doncaster station following reports that two people had been struck by a train. Officers and paramedics were quickly on scene, however a man and woman were sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Work is being done to identify the man and woman and to inform their next of kin. An investigation into how the man and woman came to be on the tracks is underway, however at this time the circumstances are not thought to be suspicious.”
Virgin Trains also confirmed the incident and said trains were cancelled as a result. Writing on the firm’s official Twitter account, a spokesperson said: “My heart is broken for all involved in this tragic incident. Services are returning to normal but so much pain will remain.”
