Family pay tribute to Paddington man
The family of a young Paddington man who died after being hit by a train have described him as "the light of our lives".
Lewis Ghessen, 22, was found dead at Harrow and Wealdstone station on Sunday, September 25.
A train driver reported seeing his body on the tracks, shortly before 9pm.
Officers from the British Transport Police are treating the incident as unexplained and are trying to piece together Mr Ghessen's movements prior to his death.
Detective superintendent Gary Richardson said: "It isn't yet clear why Lewis was in the area, where he had been, or how he came to be on the tracks.
"It's crucial that anyone who saw Lewis comes forward because it will help us build a picture of his whereabouts that evening.
"Anyone with information regarding Lewis' movements in the hours before his death is urged to contact police."
As part of the investigation, officers were at the station yesterday, handing out photos of Mr Ghessen and speaking with members of the public in a bid for more information.
In a statement released by police, his family said: "Lewis was the light of our lives.
"He was full of life and never seemed to take it for granted.
"His interests were many, as were his friends.
"He was a London boy who loved his family and was loyal to his mother, father, brothers, and sister.
"England has lost a remarkable child."
