A man in a wheelchair has been killed after being struck by a train in Perth.
Police say the man was hit by a train at the Carlisle train station this evening.
It is believed he was trying to cross the tracks at the station.
Three months ago, a woman with cerebral palsy who was confined to a wheelchair was killed after she was hit by a train at the same station.
She had fallen onto the tracks after her wheelchair became stuck and her carer was unable to pull her to safety in time.
