A woman has been killed on the Underground Getty

A female London commuter has been killed on the Jubilee Line at Swiss Cottage, north-west London.

The Jubilee Line is part-suspended between Waterloo and West Hampstead and there are severe delays on the rest of the line - in the midst of the rush hour - after the woman was killed on the lines.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: "Our officers were called to Swiss Cottage London Underground station shortly before 3.30pm on Wednesday November 12, after reports a woman had been struck by a train.

"Colleagues from London Ambulance Service also attended, but a woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Officers are working to identify the woman, whose death is not being treated as suspicious, and inform her family."

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said it was called to Swiss Cottage Station at 3.20 to reports a person was under a train.

"An ambulance crew, responders in a car and two duty officers were sent to the scene but sadly the woman was dead," he added.
