Three men have died after being struck by a train near a south London station.
It is understood that spray cans were found near the bodies of the men, who are believed to be in their 20s.
Police were called to Loughborough Junction station, near Brixton, at about 07:30 BST and the three were pronounced dead at the scene.
The deaths are being treated as “unexplained” and police are investigating how the men came to be on the tracks.
British Transport Police (BTP) said it is investigating whether the men were graffiti artists and confirmed that they were not employed to be on the tracks.
Supt Matt Allingham told the BBC: “When graffiti artists do get on to the tracks, there is massive risk.”
