Men who died after being hit by a train in south London are named

Three men who died after being hit by a train in south London have been named.

Alberto Fresneda Carrasco

The body of Alberto Fresneda Carrasco, 19, was found at Loughborough Junction at well-known graffiti spot.

His family said he loved drawing from a young age and was due to start at London College of Communication later this year.

In recent years, he showed interest in the world of fashion and came up with a brand with his own designs. Another of his hobbies was buying clothes in charity shops and reselling it on the internet. He had a special eye for business.

His absence has left a deep hole in the family. His mother Isabel, his father Carlos and his bothers Miguel, 21, and Julio, 14, appreciate the support.

The family of Harrison Scott-Todd also paid tribute. He was an only son and described by his mum and dad as "the love of our life".

Harrison was loved by everyone, he was an intelligent and wonderful boy who had so many close friends.

Over the past 24 hours we’ve received so many lovely messages of support from his friends and we are both grateful for all of their support and kindness.

Hearing about their love and friendship for Harrison is helping us during this awful time.

Spray cans were found close to the bodies on tracks in south London, an area known for graffiti.

Flowers and three spray cans lay next to shutters at the station, which had been spray-painted with "RIP" and three love hearts, on Tuesday morning.

Police say the three men may have been killed overnight when freight trains operate.

The bodies were found on a section of track with an electric third rail between Brixton and Denmark Hill.

There isn't a sort of safe refuge up there so if somebody was on those tracks there wouldn't be anywhere for them to go to avoid the train.

As far as I understand it, if they've been caught in that section of track when a train came through then they really wouldn't have had much option.
