A 16-year-old girl whose body was found on railway tracks in Kent is thought to have been electrocuted.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
British Transport Police said her death is being treated as unexplained and an investigation is under way.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Langley said: "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of this young girl as they try to come to terms with this awful news.
Police say the girl was with friends near the station shortly before 11pm on Tuesday
"We have deployed specially trained officers to the family to provide them with support.
"Understandably the family are now desperate for answers and my officers are focused on understanding how this girl came to be on the tracks.
"What we know so far is that the girl was with a group of friends near the station shortly before 11pm yesterday evening.
"Some time between then and 7am this morning, she came to receive these injuries.
"Therefore, I would be looking to speak with anyone who might have been near to Herne Bay station during this period."
Although official identification has not taken place, the girl's family have been informed and a post-mortem will be carried out on Friday.
