Although lines have now reopened, the incident has caused severe delays which are expected to run until this evening, according to National Rail.
Charlotte Ann Mather, who was at the train station at the time, said: “Basically outside the station there were crowds of people. A coach turned up, might have been rail replacement, and a long line of people were getting on.
“The station was heaving with people – almost as bad as when the Tour de France was on.
“I saw the sign telling people what had happened on the boards and there were police officers there, but we didn’t get any more information on what happened from station announcements. ”
The identity of the person is not yet known.
