British Transport Police officers were called to the station just before 4.45pm on Monday after railway staff helped the man onto a platform, where he was treated for unknown injuries.

Passengers on platforms 2 and 4 were told to move to platform 5 and electrical power to rail lines was switched off.

A BTP spokesman said that officers were called to the station, following a report of a person trespassing on the tracks.

“Officers attended the scene alongside paramedics and a man has been taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. An investigation is now underway to determine how the man came to be by the tracks.”
