A 14-year-old boy reportedly handed his bag and phone to his friends before being struck by a train in Chertsey.

Officers were called to Chertsey Station on July 15 at around 4pm.

The teenager has now been named locally as Sam Connor, who was allegedly being bullied at Salesian School, however according to The Mirror the school has no record of this.

Witnesses said that there were at least 40 to 50 schoolchildren on the platform at the time Sam is reported to have 'lay on the tracks', with older children trying to keep people from seeing what had happened.

Salesian School cancelled its sports day this week to allow friends and family of the pupil to grieve.

A British Transport Police spokesperson added: "Officers were called to Chertsey station at 4pm on July 15 following reports of a casualty on the tracks.

"Paramedics also attended but sadly a 14-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

"His family have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers.”
