A woman has died after being struck by a train at Swiss Cottage tube station.

The incident happened just before 3.30pm and is not being treated by police as suspicious.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and has not yet been identified.

The Jubilee line is suspended between Waterloo and West Hampstead, causing severe delays.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “Our officers were called to Swiss Cottage London Underground station shortly before 3.30pm on Wednesday, 12 November, after reports a woman had been struck by a train.

“Colleagues from London Ambulance Service also attended, but a woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Officers are working to identify the woman, whose death is not being treated as suspicious, and inform her family.”
