A MAN was killed after he was hit by a train in Newbold this morning (Monday).

The victim, who has yet to be named, was struck by the 8.10am London Euston to Bangor train on the line off Parkfield Road at around 9am.

British Transport Police officers, Warwickshire Police and paramedics were sent to the scene and discovered the man's body.
