THE father of a 23-year-old man who was killed after being struck by a train at Bethnal Green rail station on Saturday (November 6) has said he will never be forgotten.

Emdad Hussain of Bethnal Green died after being hit by a National Express East Anglia passenger train travelling to Stansted Airport at 4.45am.

His father, Faruk Ali, said: “He was much loving, caring, jolly and always willing to help and forgive as well as brave.

“He will be dearly missed and won’t be forgotten and will always be in our hearts.

“He was so bright, brave and had pride and joy in what he did.”

Paramedics from the London Ambulance Service administered medical treatment to Mr Hussain at the Dunbridge Street station but were unable to save him.

Police arrested two men, aged 21 and 22 and also said to be from the local area, late on Saturday evening.

Both have been bailed until January 10.

Investigating officer, Det Chief Insp David Shiperlee, said that Mr Hussain had been at the station with a group of male friends.

An investigation into Mr Hussain’s death is ongoing.
