Train hits person near Queen Street Station in Glasgow, Services disrupted until noon

A person has died after being hit by a train in Glasgow.

Around 6:30 in the morning, between Queen Street and Belgrove stations, the British Transport Police (BTP) arrived along with the ambulance services to the spot, where the incident took place. Unfortunately, the person was pronounced dead.

A spokesman for BTP said: “Shortly after 6.30am today (September 12) officers were called to the line close to Bellgrove station following a report of a person being struck by a train. Colleagues from the ambulance service also attended, however a person was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Officers are working to inform their family and making inquiries into how they came to be on the tracks”.

At the same time, a ScotRail Alliance representative commented: “Sadly, due to a person being struck by a train between Glasgow and Bellgrove, services have been disrupted this morning”.

Meanwhile, the incident caused a disruption on the rail-line.

Trains on the Balloch to Airdrie, Helensburgh Central/Milngavie to Edinburgh and Dumbarton Central/Dalmuir to Cumbernauld were subject to delays, alterations and cancellations.

The ScotRail spokesman underlined that the line had reopened and that they expected some further disruption while services return to normal.

He also made clear that anyone delayed over 30 minutes should keep hold of their tickets as they will be eligible for compensation under our Delay Repay scheme.
