“Local paramedics attended and the body was located and [the man] pronounced dead at the scene. The incident is being treated as non-suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

The train involved was the 11.20 London Paddington to Great Malvern service.

An inquest into the death of Mr Brown was opened and adjourned by the Worcestershire Coroner.
