A body found in toilets at a Worcester train station was that of a woman in her 40s, British Transport Police (BTP) have said.
As we reported yesterday, police and ambulance crews were called to the city’s Foregate Street station just after 6pm last night.
Half of platform one and the station’s toilets were shut to the public and cordoned off with police tape.
Commuters waiting for trains were asked to remain at the far end of the platform while around eight police officers accompanied by station staff went in and out of the toilets.
A BTP spokesman said: "At around 6.15pm we received reports of the body of a woman found hanging in the toilets at Worcester Foregate Street rail station.
"BTP officers attended, as did colleagues from West Mercia Police and paramedics.
"The body of a woman, believed to be in her 40s, was discovered in the toilets at platform one.
"Officers are currently working to identify the deceased and to ascertain the exact circumstances surrounding the death although, at this stage, it is not believed anyone else was involved.
"Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111."
