A MAN’s body was found near to a railway line.

British Transport Police officers were called to Hawarden Bridge station, near Shotton, just before 8.45am yesterday after receiving reports of a man’s body lying near the tracks.

Following a swift investigation, the body was found and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

His death is being treated as unexplained.

Arriva Trains Wales services were cancelled or delayed between Bidston and Shotton as emergency services staff dealt with the death.

Services were reopened just before 4pm with delays of up to 15 minutes.

In a statement a British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: “Officers attended the incident alongside paramedics from the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

“Following a search of the area, the body of a man was discovered next to the railway line.

“He was pronounced dead at the scene.
