He is thought to have lived locally but it is not thought there any suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

The incident happened this morning and led to cancellations of services between Ipswich and Peterborough via Ely.

By this evening the service through the Fens was back to normal after several trains were either delayed or cancelled.

A Greater Anglia spokesman said earlier tonight: “A person was hit by a train earlier at Manea between Ely and March the train service is now resuming between Ely and Peterborough in both directions.
