There are still severe delays at Mile End station after a person was hit by a train

Power for the District Line trains was switched off while paramedics attended to a 64-year-old man under the train.

Hundreds of commuters have been trying to make their way out of the station after trains were stalled from the power cut.

The victim was hit by a Westbound District Line train but the Eastbound District Line was also affected by the power being cut off.

A London ambulance spokeswoman said: “We were called just before 11.45am to reports that a person was under a train at Mile End underground station. Our staff treated the man and took him to the Royal London Hospital with a leg injury.”

Four ambulance vehicles attended the incident.

A British Transport Police spokeswoman said the incident was not being treated as suspicious.
