A MAN was killed after he was hit by a train in Newbold.
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 yesterday (Monday).
British Transport Police officers, Warwickshire Police and paramedics were sent to the scene and discovered the man's body.
His death is not being treated as suspicious, and officers are now trying to establish his identity and inform his family.
Network Rail said the accident stopped all rail services through Rugby for a time. Trains were then diverted via Birmingham where possible, adding 45 minutes to journey times.
A total of 17 trains were cancelled, and 240 other trains delayed.
All lines reopened at midday once the man's body had been removed.
