Local bus routes, both FirstBus and TfL, will carry customers, as will other train companies from London termini.

I guess that covers it, though more precise info would have been better.
Where I've just looked - Journeycheck for Reading-London - it says:

A murder investigation has been launched and a rail station closed after a woman was found fatally injured at a house near Bristol.

The 27-year-old was found with serious injuries inside a house in Brendon Gardens, Nailsea, Somerset, shortly before 07:00 GMT.

A 45-year-old man was arrested at Nailsea and Backwell railway station at 07:30 and is being treated in hospital.

The station has been closed and a cordon is in place at Brendon Gardens.

Police said paramedics tried to save the woman but she died at the scene.

Her next of kin are being supported by officers.

Det Ch Insp James Riccio said: "This investigation is at a very early stage and we are doing everything possible to determine how the woman died.

"We're aware this will have an impact on the wider community and I'd like to reassure people we believe this to be an isolated incident."

Anyone with information is urged to contact Avon & Somerset Constabulary.

One quote in that article struck me:

Quote
Passenger Oliver Riley was on board the train that hit the woman, he said:  '[The delays] are inconvenient, but the circumstances are sad. Someone has had a much worse day than me.'

An update on the incident at Nailsea & Backwell Station - from the Bristol Post:

Andrew Tavener arrested over wife Claire's murder after being hit by train at Nailsea station

The 45-year-old was arrested after Claire Tavener’s body was found at their home in Nailsea

A man was arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife at their family home in Nailsea after being struck by a train at a nearby station.

Andrew Tavener was arrested by police on Monday, January 8, after being hit by a train at Nailsea and Backwell railway station around 7.30am.

The 45-year-old tree surgeon, who was taken to hospital with a hand injury, was detained after his wife, Claire Tavener, died at their family home in Brendon Gardens.

The 27-year-old, a mother of two, was found inside the property with serious injuries and despite the efforts of paramedics, died at the scene.

Avon and Somerset Police have called it an “isolated incident” but told how officers “are doing everything possible to determine how the woman died”.

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.
