Body found near Paddington Tube

If you were wondering what was going on with the closure of the Circle and District lines this morning, the answer isn't pretty:

A woman has been found dead near Paddington Tube station.

The body was discovered just before 0800 GMT and has caused the closure of two lines.

British Transport Police (BTP) are investigating the incident and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Supt Ellie Bird from the BTP said CCTV in the area had been seized by officers in the hope of identifying the woman and determining what happened.

The Circle Line has been suspended and the District Line between High Street Kensington and Edgware Road has also been closed.
