Is this a joke? How dare you come to such ridiculous conclusions without knowing any facts. The reasons for this mans desperate act are of no concern to you. Have some respect. There is every chance this mans family members may read this and am sure they would not appreciate such idiotic comments!!

Clive Street is behind Bradshawgate, well away from the station.

I feel sorry for the man's family & for the train driver who is bound to be very shocked by this tragic incident.

If the man was suicidal, have compassion for him & his family.
Sadly, & I hope not, it could have been someone doing his job on the railway,there are a lot of possibilities.
May he RIP .
