A woman killed on a train may have been leaning out of a window when she suffered a blow to the head, police have said.

The 28-year-old woman, from Penarth, died at the scene after experiencing serious head injuries on a Bristol Temple Meads-bound service, between Bath and Keynsham on Saturday evening.

Police said the woman's death was not being treated as suspicious and her family had been informed.

They said "initial inquiries suggest the woman may have been leaning out of a window when she suffered a blow to the head."

Officers were called at 10.10pm on Saturday (01/12) following a report a woman had received serious head injuries while travelling on a train between Bath and Keynsham.

Colleagues from South Western Ambulance Service also attended, however, despite their best efforts, a 28-year-old woman from Penarth sadly died at the scene. Her family has been informed.

We are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the incident, which has been reported to the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB).

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.
