3:40pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
Police are appealing for help in identifying a man who died after being hit by a train in Hampshire.
Officers were called to Sway railway station in the New Forest last Saturday after a body was found near the base of a bridge over the line. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
There was no identification on the body and the dead man's fingerprints were not on the police database.
Inspector Mick Morriss, of British Transport Police said: “It's crucial we establish the man's identity so we can inform his family.
“Our enquiries are ongoing to determine the full circumstances surrounding the incident and this is why I'm asking for the public's help.
“I'd also like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or has any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, so we can build a clearer picture of what took place.”
The man is described as white, aged between 40 and 55, average build, with blue eyes and dark brown hair.
He was wearing a green anorak-type coat, a blue scarf, grey check trousers, and trainers.
Call British Transport Police on 0300 123 9104.
