Two people who died after allegedly hugging one another while jumping in front of a train, have been named as a couple from Doncaster. 

According to reports, Melissa Wood, 27, and Christopher Linley, 34, were both pronounced dead shortly after 8pm on Tuesday at a railway station in South Yorkshire.

It is believed they bought tickets to get past the barriers at the station. British Transport Police confirmed the deaths and said officers were working to identify the victims.

A spokesman said: ‘At 6.46pm, a man and woman were seen on CCTV arriving at the station. ‘They moved around the concourse and various platforms, occasionally sitting in waiting rooms.

‘At 8.23pm, they were struck by a train on the tracks at Platform 1. ‘Officers would like to speak to anyone who was at the station and saw the two people beforehand, or saw the incident, and hasn’t spoken to police yet.

‘The incident is not being treated as suspicious but officers would like to establish their movements that evening.’

Work is being done to identify the man and woman and to inform their next of kin. An investigation into how the man and woman came to be on the tracks is underway, however at this time the circumstances are not thought to be suspicious.”

Virgin Trains also confirmed the incident and said trains were cancelled as a result. Writing on the firm’s official Twitter account, a spokesperson said: “My heart is broken for all involved in this tragic incident. Services are returning to normal but so much pain will remain.”
