British Transport Police have removed a body from railway tracks in Swindon this morning.
Emergency services were called to reports of a person being struck by a train at around 8am.
Seven police officers worked at the scene behind Mannington Retail Park, off Great Western Way, for an hour before the body was place into a private ambulance.
Just 15 minutes after the body was removed from the tracks, trains began running again.
