The victim was with a friend on Guildford station

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 22-year-old was hit by train at Guildford station.

The victim, from Woking in Surrey, was with a friend on the station platform at about 11.40pm on Saturday night when he became involved in a confrontation with a number of other men.

The man was killed by the train shortly afterwards.

South East Coast Ambulance Service paramedics attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim has not been named but his family has been notified by police.

Detective Chief Inspector Iain Miller, senior investigating officer, said: "Our thoughts are very much with the man's family at this acutely difficult time for them.

"They're trying to come to terms with what has happened and at this stage, quite understandably, they have asked to be left alone to grieve.

"The station was cordoned off until the early hours of Sunday morning while forensic officers conducted a thorough search and my team of detectives are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death, which we are currently treating as suspicious.

"Three men were arrested in connection with the incident and they remain in custody being questioned by detectives."

Two 19-year-old men from Guildford were arrested at the scene while a third man, from Cranleigh, handed himself into a police station later.
