Oh Bhudeeka, what a caring person you are - someone has been hit and killed by a train - whatever the circumstances are the person is likely to have a family, and if this was one of your loved ones, wouldn't you like to think that the emergency services did the best job they could. It has now been said that it is a crime scene, and so again, if it was one of your relatives, wouldn't you want to know what happened.
You really are an awful woman.

Disgraceful comment from the first poster. I attended many of these incidents and they are not for the feint hearted. Totally agree re next of kin and the compassion needed to deal with tragic circumstances such as this.

How does one just step in front of a train? Isn't there a barrier of some sort?

Because the photograph is supporting the main thrust of the story, which is about 'Passengers Facing Major Delays', and hence the depiction of crowds of commuters along the line at Shenfield who are unable to board their train.

The story is not actually concentrated on the accident itself.

For once the BWT have manged to get it right, so be gentle with them on this occasion.

There'll no doubt be plenty of valid opportunities later. I shouldn't think you will have to wait very long
