Officers from British Transport Police (BTP), Wiltshire Police and colleagues from South Western Ambulance Service attended, but a man, aged 21, was sadly pronounced dead.
Today, officers from BTP are appealing for information on how the man, Andrew McGarn from Salisbury, came to be on the tracks.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Sheela Chhaya, said: “Two week has passed since this tragic incident and our thoughts remain with the family of Andrew.
“Although we are not treating this incident as suspicious, we are continuing to enquire as to how this man came to be on the tracks.
“We’d like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, or who has any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, so we can build a clearer picture of what took place. I am particularly keen to trace a blue backpack which I believe Andrew was wearing prior to his death. ”
Anyone with any information is encourage to contact the BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference 55 of 08/12/2016.
