A person who died after being struck by a train just outside Cromer was a 59-year-old woman.

The incident happened on Saturday, December 1, just after 10am, at Roughton Road Railway Station.

British Transport Police (BTP) have confirmed the age of the victim, but said they would not be releasing her name or additional details before an inquest into the fatality had been scheduled.
