Man In Fatal Billingham Train Incident Is Named
A train by Northern Rail was involved in a collision with a member of the public last week, 21st June 2017.
The train was running between Middlesbrough & Sunderland when, 66 year old Joseph Beaumont Lauder, was hit by the pacer-train just outside of Billingham station.
Train services along the line were stopped last week following the incident, which is not being treated as suspicious.
The British Transport Police was called at 11.40am and officers and paramedics were called to the scene.
Sadly Mr Beaumont Lauder was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Grand Central service between Sunderland and London Kings Cross was also affected.
