A woman killed after being struck by a train is believed to have been trying to rescue her dog.

British Transport Police (BTP) were called to the scene, the Fisherman’s level crossing between Freshfield and Ainsdale, just before 3pm today, along with Merseyside Police and the North West Ambulance Service.

BTP said the woman was killed on a crossing and the incident was not being treated as suspicious.

Residents in Freshfield told the ECHO the woman was trying to rescue her dog before the tragedy.

Kanesh Saran, who works at a newsagents in Freshfield, said: “People say that it’s a dangerous spot. Dogs can get underneath the gate and walk under it.

“That’s where the problem started. She has gone through the gate to protect the dog which was on the track and then been hit, it’s very very sad.”

Another man said: “I went for a run and I got so far and then he said you can’t go past that bit, and I had to turn around.”
