Boy, 14, ‘gave bag to friends’ before being killed by train ‘in front of pupils’

A 14-year-old schoolboy handed his bag to his friends before being fatally hit by a train in front of dozens of students, it is claimed.

The Year 9 student, named locally as Sam, reportedly also passed his phone to pals before his death at Chertsey station, in Surrey, on Monday.

He died at around 4pm, when the station platform was 'full of school children'.

One mum claimed Sam was being bullied – but the school said it had no record of this.

Salesian School, in Chertsey, cancelled its sports day yesterday to allow friends and family of the pupil to grieve.

There have been several online tributes saying "RIP Sam".

One lad with friends at the school told Mail Online : "It's horrible. I have friends who were there and saw the whole thing.

"They said he was being bullied. It's only four days until school breaks up and you'd have thought he'd be able to get help.

"I've met him in passing and he seemed happy. But I guess you never know what's going on with someone. It's just a shock."

He added that the pupil handed his bag and phone to friends before his death.

One mum told the website that her son had seen saw the pupil on his own in the school's playground.

She said: "My son used to see Sam on his own in the playground.

"He never saw him being physically attacked but he knew he was being bullied. It's just horrific."

However, a school spokesman told Mail Online there was no record of the boy being bullied.
