Psychology Graduate Killed by Tube Train

University of York Psychology graduate John Burgess has died after being hit by a tube train in Stockwell, London.

British Transport Police have released the information that Burgess, aged 27, was struck by the train on April 10th and died of his injuries three days later.

The incident appeared to be an accident, as Mr Burgess was struck by a train as he reached down for his suitcase during rush hour.

Burgess worked as an account manager at marketing analyst firm ‘Ebiquity’ in central London, and was known to his friends as ‘Joe’. A JustGiving page has been set up in his name in aid of raising money for London’s Air Ambulance. So far, more than £5,000 has been raised.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said:

“British Transport Police officers are currently preparing a report for the coroner, and the incident is not being treated as suspicious.”
