Officers are currently working to identify the full circumstances, and passengers were reportedly asked to leave the station at around 4pm.

All lines have been blocked so delays and cancellations are likely, a spokesman for TransPennine Express said. Trains affected could be diverted via Styal.

Disruption is expected until around 5.45pm.

In a tweet, East Midlands Railway said: “Sadly, a person has been hit by a train between Manchester Piccadilly and Sheffield. The emergency services are en route to manage the incident. Where possible, train services will divert between Sheffield and Manchester.”
