Mother and daughter killed by train at Ealing Broadway


A mother and her teenage daughter have died after being struck by a First Great Western train in west London.

The woman, 36, and her 16-year-old child were killed at Ealing Broadway station at 18:10 BST on Tuesday.

British Transport Police (BTP) said it was not treating the pair’s deaths as suspicious.

Heathrow Express services were suspended, while First Great Western said there were delays to and from Paddington on Tuesday evening.

BTP officers attended the scene along with the Met Police, London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade.

The force said the train was London-bound.

Supt Chris Horton, from BTP, said: “We can confirm that we are not treating the deaths as suspicious and we will assist in the compilation of a report for the coroner.

“Our thoughts are now with the family and we have specialist officers with them providing support and guidance at what is clearly a difficult and traumatic time.”

A spokesman for First Great Western said: “We are doing all we can to help the police with their investigation into this terrible incident.”
