Man killed by train at East Croydon

A wheelchair-bound South Croydon man was killed by a high speed Gatwick Express train when he fell on to the track at East Croydon Station.

At 3.52pm on Tuesday, May 21, 35-year-old Michael Kulner, of Bramley Hill, was struck near platform one by the 15.35 service from Gatwick to Victoria.

A spokesman for Croydon British Transport Police said the incident was not suspicious, but confirmed evidence to establish whether Mr Kulner fell or committed suicide was being taken from CCTV tapes and witness statements.

A spokesman for Gatwick Express said: "We wish to pass on our condolences to the family.

"Such events are always very difficult for all those involved and we will work with British Transport Police to find out exactly what happened."

A South Central spokesman said platforms one and two at East Croydon were closed while police investigated and delays of over an hour affected trains to Caterham, Tattenham Corner and London Bridge into early evening.
