17 year old hit by train in Welling

Trains on the Welling line were delayed and cancelled yesterday due to an “incident” as Welling station.

Information was slow to emerge but it now appears a 17 year old boy was hit by a train at the station.

The British Transport Police have revealed that:

“a 17-year-old boy was taken to hospital with potentially life-changing injuries.

This incident is not currently being treated as suspicious.”
