    A man who died on the Gatwick Express was found by another passenger with a "massive trauma" to his head, an inquest has heard.

    Simon Brown, 24, from East Grinstead, West Sussex, hit his head on a signal gantry on 7 August.

    The hearing in London was told that passenger Kirstin Duffield heard a "loud thud".In a statement read by the coroner, she said she found Mr Brown with an injury that was "not survivable".
