A woman in her 30s is in hospital after being found at a house in Surrey with knife wounds following the death of her estranged partner.

Surrey Police said officers had forced entry to the property in Bardsley Drive, Farnham, on Wednesday morning.

It followed an incident on the railway between Bentley station in Hampshire and Farnham an hour earlier when a man died after being hit by a train.

The woman was taken to Frimley Park Hospital by air ambulance.

Surrey Police said the attack on the woman and the man's death were being linked.

Dead at scene

A spokesman would not reveal the woman's identity, but said the pair were former partners.

British Transport Police said the man had been pronounced dead at the scene on the railway line.

A spokesman said paramedics from Helicopter Emergency Medical Service had attended the incident.

"The incident is currently being treated as non-suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner," he said.

The train involved was the 0948 GMT Alton to Waterloo service.
