Mystery woman died on tracks

Have your say

THE identity of a woman who died after being hit by a train at Dronfield railway station 10 days ago is still not known.

She was hit by a train at 10.50am on Sunday, November 13 - but so far police officers investigating the circumstances have not been able to identify her or trace any friends or relatives.

Lists of people reported as missing nationwide have been examined to look for a match, but so far officers have drawn a blank.

A forensic examination of the body is now being carried out to try to help police identify the woman. They believe she was aged between 45 and 55 years old.

She was white, had black curly hair and wore size six shoes.

She was wearing a black-brown gilet-style long-sleeved coat from Pineapple, a zebra print scarf, black ankle boots and tight-fitting black jeans with diamante detail on the back.

She had a house key on a keyring with a safety pin attached to it.

She was wearing a gold and platinum ring on her left hand.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “We are appealing for the public’s help to identify a woman who was killed after being struck by a train at Dronfield rail station at about 10.50am on Sunday, November 13.

“The incident is being treated as non-suspicious but inquiries so far have been unable to establish the woman’s identity.

“Forensic analysis is currently ongoing. However police are keen to hear from anyone who believes they may know this woman or who has any information about the incident.”

The train involved in the collision was the 9.30am Leeds to St Pancras, London, service.
