Police have released details about a man who was hit by a train and killed at Sheffield Meadowhall Interchange on Saturday (February 14).

British Transport Police were called to the station at about 1pm after a death on the train tracks near the station.

Today, the force confirmed the death was a man aged 29, from Rotherham. He has not yet been formally named.

The exact details of the incident are yet to be confirmed, although the death is not being treated as suspicious.

The death led to long delays to rail services during the afternoon, and several trains into Sheffield terminated at Meadowhall instead of serving the city centre.

Trains are now running normally.
