Non-users of Facebook may not have been made aware of a very sad incident on the railway line just south of Haddenham & Thame Parkway this morning, Wednesday 24th November.

The station and the railway line were closed for some hours.

It appears that someone was hit by a train. These situations rarely end well, of course.

Many folk have expressed sadness and sympathy on the Haddenham dotNet Facebook page.

This is typical:

"My sincere sympathy for all concerned, including the person who was hit and all of the Chiltern Railways staff (especially the driver), the police and the medical team, as well as for the person's family and friends"
