A TRAIN line which was closed after a man was struck at Charlbury earlier today has now re-opened.

Rail operator First Great Western suspended its services between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill due to the incident where a man was killed shortly before 12 noon. A replacement bus service was used and the service resumed just over two hours later and is now running normally.

British Transport Police spokesman Brian Price said the man, who has yet to be identified, was pronounced dead at the scene and the incident was not being treated as suspicious.

He said: “Officers are working to establish the man’s identity and inform his family. A file will be prepared for the coroner.

“The train involved was a London Paddington to Hereford service.”
