The British Transport Police (BTP) has launched a murder investigation after a woman died on the northbound carriage of a train near Graveney in southern England.

The woman, in her 60s, was “struck by a car in a road close” to the station and taken to hospital.

She was later pronounced dead.

North Surrey Partnership NHS Foundation Trust said it was working with police to investigate the death.

A spokesman said the woman’s family had been informed of the incident.

Several BTP vehicles and forensic teams were seen at the scene on Tuesday afternoon. The southbound line was cancelled between the station and High Wycombe.

The spokesman said a second female was treated for her injuries, believed to be “non-life threatening”, and later discharged from hospital.
