A person has died after being hit by a train in London.

British Transport Police has said officers were called to reports of a casualty on the tracks at Alexandra Palace this afternoon (Monday, October 3).

A BTP spokesperson said: "British Transport Police were called to Alexandra Palace station at 1.36pm today (October 3) following reports of a casualty on the tracks.

"Paramedics also attended and, sadly, a person was pronounced dead at the scene.
