A FUNERAL service was held yesterday (Tuesday February 5) for bank worker Matt Lyndon who died after being hit by a train at Stourbridge Junction.

The 46-year-old, who worked for HSBC Bank, was pronounced dead on the tracks shortly after he was seen jumping off the platform as the Kidderminster to Dorridge train pulled away on January 16.

An inquest heard bank administrator Mr Lyndon had earlier “crumbled” when he received a text and voicemail from work while signed off sick from his job and his partner Caroline Garrington told how she believed "work were hassling him and pushed him over the edge".

The inquest, held at Black Country Coroner's Court, was adjourned until March 26 after assistant coroner Emma Serrano said she wanted further enquiries made regarding Mr Lyndon's tragic death.

Meanwhile - a funeral service was held on Tuesday at Stourbridge Crematorium and a charity fund has been set up in his memory.

More than £1,800 has been donated to date which will go to the Alzheimer’s Society as a close relative of Mr Lyndon's has been battling the disease.
