Contractor dies while working on travelator at Waterloo station

A contractor died while working on a travelator at Waterloo station early this morning.
The engineer had been on the moving walkway connecting the Jubilee line and the Northern/Bakerloo lines.
Passengers were being told to avoid the interchange where possible, but the station remains open. A one-way system has been implemented for the morning rush hour.
British Transport Police are investigating the death, which is not thought to be suspicious. It is not yet clear how the man died.
At 5.24am Transport for London wrote on Twitter: “Waterloo Station: No interchange between lines, due to a fault with the the travellator. Please exit the station and walk back in.”
A tweet by Jubilee Line just after 7.30am read: “Waterloo Station – A one way system has been implemented at this station due to an ongoing police investigation, customers are advised to avoid interchange where possible.”
Waterloo is the largest and one of the busiest stations in London.
Transport for London will be releasing a statement on the incident later this morning.
The Telegraph has contacted British Transport Police for comment.
