The 30-year-old died in Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge on Monday, British Transport Police (BTP) has confirmed.

The man had been airlifted to the hospital in a critical condition following the incident on Saturday and was said to be in a stable condition, but unfortunately his health deteriorated.

London North Eastern Railway (LNER), which runs the East Coast Main Line, said on Saturday morning the man had died, but this turned out to be incorrect with the man surviving until Monday.
