INCIDENT: Moor Lane FP, Staines, Surrey 16th April 2008

A woman has been killed after getting stuck on a footpath crossing and hit by a train.

Theresa Mansell, 66, had been crossing the line at Moor Lane, Staines, with a friend whilst walking a dog. It is believed that Mrs Mansell trapped her foot in a gap between a rail and the wooden decking of the crossing walkway. She was unable to free herself despite the efforts of her friend, Heather George, and was struck by a Waterloo to Windsor passenger train.
