The Argus: Family pay tribute to teenager who died after falling onto railway track Family pay tribute to teenager who died after falling onto railway track

The family of a teenager who died after falling under a train has paid tribute to a “fantastic daughter and sister”.

Megan Moore was killed on Saturday night when she slipped and fell between a moving train and platform at Angmering station, near Littlehampton.

It is thought Megan, 16, from East Preston, near Littlehampton, was running alongside the 10.17pm London Victoria to Bognor train.

The Chichester College student was tapping on the window as the train moved off when she slipped in the gap between the platform and the train.

Megan’s mother, Lorraine Moore, speaking on behalf of Megan’s father Howard and brother Ryan, said: “We would like to thank everybody for being so kind and supportive at this sad and difficult time.

“Megan had just started Chichester College doing a media course and although she only started the course in September we know that she was very happy there.

“She was a fantastic daughter and sister, a kind, thoughtful and spirited girl who was blossoming into a young lady.

“She will always be loved and missed by her family and many friends.”

A spokesman for British Transport Police said: “Our thoughts are with Megan’s family at this very difficult and sad time.

“The incident was reported to police at 11.57pm and is being treated as non-suspicious.

“The train performed an emergency stop and halted still partly in the platform.”

“Officers are currently working to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the incident and anyone with any information is asked to call British Transport Police on 0800 405040."
