Thoughts with all affected;

Cancellations to services between London Paddington and Slough


Due to a person being hit by a train between London Paddington and Slough all lines are blocked.
Train services running to and from these stations may be cancelled or delayed. Disruption is expected until 10:00 29/12.

This happened around 07:20
From what I can see Paddington bound services are being held at Reading.

Female reported to have jumped onto track in front of train and suffered facial injuries.

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

Sounds like a miraculous escape.
