UPDATE: The man found dead on a railway line at Scorrier has been formally identified as Stephen Curnow, a 58-year-old from Redruth

The man's family has been informed and an inquest into his death is expected to be opened and adjourned next week.

British Transport Police are appealing for witnesses following the discovery of a man with injuries 'consistent with having been hit by a train' on a railway line near Redruth yesterday.

The man, found at Drump Lane at Scorrier yesterday morning, has not been formally identified.

Officers say the death is not being treated as suspicious.

A BTP spokesman said "Officers from BTP and Devon & Cornwall Police attended the railway line at Drump Lane in Redruth on Tuesday after a report of a body on the tracks.

"Medics from the South Western Ambulance Service also attended and located the body of a man with injuries consistent with having been hit by a train. He was pronounced dead at the scene."

Emergency services were called to the scene after the body was reported just after 6.45 by the driver of the 6am Penzance to Cardiff Central train.
