Rail services are currently disrupted between Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge after a man was hit by a train at a level crossing near Newmarket.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokeswoman said officers were called to the line, at the road level crossing near Dullingham, at 11.46am to reports of a person hit by a train.

She said: “Officers attended the incident alongside colleagues from Suffolk Constabulary. Medics from East of England Ambulance Service attended but a man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Work is now underway to identify the man, inform his family, and compile a report for the coroner. The incident is currently being treated as non-suspicious.”

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said officers from Suffolk and Cambridgeshire police are assisting with road closures in the area.

Greater Anglia has stated on Twitter that services running through the station will be cancelled, delayed by up to 15 minutes, or revised with some trains being diverted via Wymondham.

A limited replacement bus service will be running between Bury and Cambridge, but journey times will be extended by up to 45 minutes.

Disruption is expected until around 4pm this afternoon. For updates, go to journeycheck.com/greateranglia/
