Tom Maynard: Train death cricketer 'electrocuted'


Cricketer Tom Maynard was electrocuted on a railway line before being struck by train as he tried to evade police after driving while drunk and high on drugs, an inquest heard.

The 23-year-old Cardiff-born batsman was found near Wimbledon Park station shortly after 05:00 BST on 18 June.

He had earlier been stopped by police after he was seen driving his black Mercedes erratically.

But the Surrey player fled, leaving his keys in the ignition.

BBC Wales Today's Tomos Dafydd reports from the inquest.
