All lines have now reopened after a person was hit by a train at Seven Kings during this evening's rush hour.

The person was hit at Seven Kings near Ilford, blocking all Greater Anglia lines, including Southend Victoria to London Liverpool Street.

Train services running through Seven Kings may be cancelled or delayed by up to 45 mins at short notice.

TfL Local Buses, TfL Underground, c2c and First Capital Connect are allowing Greater Anglia customers to use their services.

Greater Anglia says staff are working as fast as possible to restore services to normal and in a statement on its website it thanks customers for their "patience and understanding."

If this is a suicide, as it could well be, how on earth can the Echo give the article such an uncaring headline which appears only to focus on the fact that the trains have been disrupted. There could be a distraught family out there of someone else who has decided to throw in the towel through a million and one possible awful things going on in their life. I know we live in an uncaring society now - the Echo headline looks as though it's leading the way!

If it is another case of suicide, RIP to the unfortunate soul and condolences to their friends and family.

Jumping in front of a train and getting splattered into a thousand pieces ain't my cup of tea. Certainly ain't how I would go out anyway. Okay, besides the victim, and I do show some sympathy to him or her, but what about the thousands of people disrupted trying to get home from work and being with their families for the weekend? What about if people are trying to get to hospital appointments? The list could go on. Suicide really ain't the answer. There's help out there, and support from other people close in your life. I'm afraid this will just go down as another statistic for this year. Life goes on as they.

We assume it was suicide, if it was then it's a tragic way to end a life when you feel there is no hope ..

As for you, making yet another joke about someone taking their life is sickening and shows your true colours ....
