Update: The man who was hit by a train at Raynes Park station, near Wimbledon, has been pronounced dead at the scene.
British Transport Police attended the scene alongside London Ambulance Service at around 6:45am this morning. Officers are now trying to establish the man's identity.
Raynes Park has reopened but South West Trains is now saying there will be severe disruption to its services until at least 3:30pm today.
