Major disruption all morning in and out of Marylebone! It has been referred to as a major police incident?

A man has died after being hit by a train near Wembley Stadium in an incident police are treating as unexplained.

British Transport Police were called to the overground railway line close to Willesden Green station at 7.58am after reports a man had been struck by a train.

Medics from the London Ambulance Service were called out to help but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A police spokesman said the death was being treated as unexplained and a file would be prepared for the coroner....

Jubilee line was suspended over the whole line too

Surprised by that I thought they would have just turned around at Waterloo as they did in 1999 before the whole line was connected at Westminster

IIRC it's only a single trailing crossover, so would have only permitted around one train every 10 minutes (plus possibly a North Greenwich-Stratford every 10 minutes)

Probably just easier to suspend entirely for crowd control rather than trying to run a (probably) inadequate frequency.

Unless crew step back such that the shunt is double manned.

Interestingly though West Hampstead is before Willesden Green so the disruption must have been close to there otherwise why not turn there in the centre siding?

You'd need to position the 'extra' driver down there first to get it up and running. Not easy or quick to do when not pre-planned.

The whole line was suspended as it was initially reported that it would only be a 15 Min shutdown to allow body removal, and this would aid much quicker service recovery. In the end it took a little longer but the Jubilee got up running quicker as they used a Met train to 'shield' the worksite.
