British Transport Police is calling for help from the public in a bid to piece together the moments leading up to serious incident at Leyland railway station.

On January 5, a 42-year-old Chorley woman was struck by a train at the station and suffered serious injuries to her legs.

The incident is not being treated as suspicious, but BTP officers are now trying to piece together the moments before the woman was hit by the train.

Det Constable Chris Biggs said: “The incident happened shortly before 7.30pm, but we believe the woman had been at the station for a short while before she was struck by the train.

“We have already spoken to several people who were in and around Leyland station on Sunday evening, but I am sure there are others we have yet to speak to.”

He added: “Although the woman is now in a stable condition, this was a serious incident and I need to speak to anyone who may be able to shed light on exactly what happened in the moments before she was hit.” Call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 .
